This is what my compressor looks like I have had it for many years.
It is very loud running.
I have never tested the current usage.

I would like to come back to this post. It has been about two years I have had this plasma cutter. I have done a lot more welding projects since then. I have a bigger welder now a Hobart 210.
Unless you are cutting a lot of thin stuff, I would not buy this cutter. It did do a pretty good job cutting the hinges off my tractor bucket.
The cuts are not very clean you have to do to much work getting the steel ready to use. It is just much simpler to cut the steel another way. I have many ways to cut thin steel.
The steel I have issues cutting is and 5/8. This cutter cannot handle steel this thick.
I am actually trying to sell this cutter right now.


I hope to cut clean enough holes to make them useful. Good hole saws are expensive.

I just ordered a new plasma cutter Cutmaster 60i 25% off sale helped and rebate helped. This should cut the things I want to weld.
From the videos I have watched it looks like you can cut clean enough to use the steel without much cleanup.

The Cutmaster 60i specs.
"Up to 3/4 in. (20 mm) recommended cut capacity with maximum sever of 1-1/2 in. (38 mm) and 3/4 in. (20 mm) pierce capability"

I just sold my old Plasma cutter for $225.
Not to bad I had it for two years paid $201.38 shipped and sold it for $225.

That is why it was worth waiting for a good deal for this cutter.

Now I can use this money to help pay for my new cutter.

I know this is not comparing apples to apples but here is my first cut with my new plasma cutter.
I cut the same steel the guy that bought my old one had tested it on yesterday.

Top left 1/2" top right 1/8" steel. Botton is 3/8"

I need practice I am not very smooth but I am very happy with the speed and ease this cutting went.
