Non-touch Pilot ARC
Pilot arc torch efficiently cuts though rough, painted, and rusty surfaces and produces minimal slag.
Pilot arc technology allows you to cut without touching the tip to the metal. Better cutting quality and longer consumable life.
1/2" Clean Cut
-Max Rated Clean Cut Thickness: 1/2".
-Max Severance Thickness: 3/4".
Compact plasma cutter has a handle for portability and uses non-hazardous compressed air to cut stainless steel, alloy steel, mild steel, copper and aluminum.
-Automatic Dual Voltage / Dual Frequency (110 V/220 V 50/60Hz).
Dual voltage capability allows the machine to run directly on 220 V 50/60 Hz power, or on 110 V 50/60 Hz with the use of a pigtail (sold separately).

But if you are looking for a small machine, that works, going to use it at home for hobby or small projects, then this is the machine for you, lower cost than others, Plus no gas cost or hose, regulators, ect
Bottom line: test it when you get it, it's a good system for the price, (update)keep a wire brush handy, about every 2nd cut hit the tip with wire brush, I've found out that by doing this,(while tip is still hot) it extends the life of the tip. it seems that slag blown from the metal sticks on the tip, which causes failure on tip and electrodes,going to try a gel mix on the tip to see if it solves the problem.
product has no country of origin stamp, mark, or sticker on it. not going inside until warranty expires, but it is an import.
Problems I have found
1. Ground way to short, ill fix this after warranty is expired.
2. Ground clamp ( to weak) ill fix this after warranty is expired.
3. Air line (replace it) 70 lbs of air on this thing, and in the heat, it doesn't hold up.
4. Buy extra stand off, I free hand a lot of cutting and the original one is now history. (update) stand off is to short, to close to material. looking for replacement that fits the cup size, hyperthem stand off product doesnt work on these tips.
5. Cut is to large, wide, I can cut finer lines with a gas torch and 000 tip.
6. Buy extra consumables, this thing eats them, I purchased the 40 pcs from amazon I Have used 2 full sets over last month. 2 cups, 2 tips and 2 inter electrodes , Be sure to purchase the correct ones for the system you purchased. LT vs LTD
The air regulator fittings are very loose fitting. Not sure if the fittings and the regulator are slightly mis-matched or what, but several wraps with some teflon tape (like a lot of wraps) and everything is sealed up with no air leaks. Like the other reviewer I noticed that the hose would not seal well, but after cranking down on the clamp I was able to achieve 90% seal, haha. tiny little hiss still but nothing overly worrying. I will be replacing the hose with rubber as well or maybe some good silicone hose.
I thought it odd that the ground clamp (or is it positive clamp?) is a good bit shorter than cutting lead. I am sure it would not be a big deal to extend this piece either at home or at the factory, but if I were the manufacturer that would be on my to do list. It is over a foot shorter if not 2 feet. Kinda weird, but it really does not kill the product, just an oddity that I will address one way or another at a later date. I also noticed that it does not seem to "positively" lock into the machine. Some of the other machines I have used, including my other Lotos welder it just seemed to lock in there better. More on this later.
So after a glance at the directions to verify I had everything on there correct, I took out some scrap thin steel and some scrap .120 wall chromoly tubing from my scrap pile. I chose these pieces as they were pretty darn rusty. I wanted to see how well the pilot arc would do. I set it on about 40 amps with air pressure at my regulator at right around 70. Note on my regulator on my big compressor setting it to 70, when you pull the trigger it would drop down to about 60. Not certain if the machine would have issues if I turned it up higher, I left it at this setting.
The machine cut through the 22 gauge sheet metal with ease. I was just playing around with it to make sure everything worked and it did very well. I am sure that I could have got the cut a little more narrow if I had turned down the amps, but I was just messing around to see how it did going across rusty areas and such. Travel speed will also have an effect on the width of the cuts I am sure. The faster I moved on this thin metal the thinner the cut was. I am sure there is an art to it like anything else.
Moving on to the thick .120 wall chromoly tubing I went to cut and noticed it was having a hard time starting. Then the light came on...hmmm this was not good. Well as it turned out the ground clamp had popped out of the machine due to the ground wire being shorter than the torch cables and not positively locking in the machine. With the clamp put back in the machine and turned as tight as it would lock in there, I went back to the chromoly. This time it lit up perfectly and sliced right through the .120 wall tubing with ease. Once I got it dialed in the cut was very crisp and went very fast. Mind you all this was done on 110v. Being sick, I just wanted to test the machine when it arrived to verify everything worked. Next up will be some time with it on 220v once I get the new adapter plug. I plan to test out on some other materials such as aluminum and partially painted materials. Not sure if I can update, but if so I will add to this review.
