Considering the average price of plasma cutters I took a leap of faith by purchasing one of the lower priced cutters. I was not disappointed. Ordered from the Lotus store front before it had any seller rating, and was pleasantly suprised at the prompt delivery. Pro's: Great bang for the buck. Pretty simple to operate==>watch online video. Good cord lengths. Just plain cool to operate. Con's As fore mentioned, the lack of plug should have been better noted. The user manual is severly lacking as far as cutting and reccomended voltages. The manual tells you on one page to touch metal with tip and then two pages later it says to maintian a 1mm distance?
Tip's Cleaning your work is really important the + & - must have good contact. The current spikes generated by the increased impedance of bad contacts is a good way blow 15amp power strips. Start Thin and work your way up. Wear The Right Clothing! molten metal spraying out at 66psi can cause early male splattered baldness. It does say operators should be certified to operate the equipment, wonder if that means something.
