Ok, biz, I don't really lurk here because trading coins is meh. Very boring. Does not make ADHD fairy happy.
I'm a journeyman welder but having come up in industry on good-quality name-brand tools I know shit for fuck about budget tools. I have good tools from working plenty of contracts but now that I'm going into business for myself I just don't have $2k to drop on tools that are not day-in day-out use. Like a plasma cutter. I spend about 3 days a week making parts, and I can get that down to 2 using a plasma cutter.
I have been cutting all my steel with a skinny wheel or the diablo steel demon but setting up the cuts takes forever and I'm loosing all my profit on parts cutting (still cheaper than out-sourcing by a factor of 10) hence I need to make parts cheaper by using better tools.
So the big question, does the plasmargon cut60hf-p make a good cut? Will it last the two years I need to come up with the money for a cnc? Hows the cut quality at 1/2" (13mm) steel? have any of you ever mounted a machine torch to it? Does it take hypertherm consumables (if not what style does it take)? How many CFH does it actually need? I already have to upgrade my compressor to run a plasma anyway so planning on going big and cheap there.
Why would you expect anyone here to know the answer to these questions?
you guys memed a bunch of kids into the trades surely one of them was autistic enough to buy one as a total noob.
>you guys memed
I didn't do a fucking idiot.
Why are you asking a business board questions about work tools?
that pic is so fucking old LULZ is top 1000 and peaks top 100
Everyone here that stupid is also broke.
assuming you know how to use it to make your life easier, always buy the best tool that you possibly can. i'd say even go into debt for it if you have consistent work. i'm not a welder but it's never failed me to pay full price for top end equipment that i couldn't find second hand.
You should unironically find a welding subreddit and ask there. Nobody here knows how to do anything. They can't even buy noiseGPT that's how retarded they are.
isnt that kind of weld made fun of because it shows you took too long
Yes, just TIG it if you want it petty
ser, this is Indian dogcoin board
please asking the LULZ
You suck at trading, take the L.
Industrial application, not diy. the /DIY idiots will review tools based on unboxing alone and are seldom more reliable than israelitetube
depends on what the customer asks for. But you'd be hard pressed to get a CWI to fail that weld.
>you have to go back
I do buy a lot of junk from them. But for hazard fraught money I may as well go with hobart because at least that uses miller consumables and a bunch of the boards are the same. Also miller tech support has been great to me for a bunch of years.
literally small business.
>obart because at least that uses miller consumables and a bunch of the boards are the same
The consumables for the china machines are stupid cheap compared to the American stuff.
I own two millers and a hobart welders.
My plasma is a hypertherm and the consumables are very expensive even for generics. When it dies I am going to replace it with a china one just for the savings on tips and electrodes.
That's one thing I was looking at. I can't get them locally, but for the price, I can easily keep double the consumables on hand. In the case of equipment I use regularly I would like to keep it either cheap enough to pitch or nice enough to fix. Hazard fraught rides the gray area between the two really hard and tech support is terrible when I do need them. At least with miller/hobart and fleabay junk I can ship overnight with priority AM delivery have have it when I need it instead of explaining to the plant manager why crew is standing around with their thumbs up their asses.
What ever you buy dont get a thermodynamics machine. The tips are 10$ each. Most of the china brands use the same tip.
Make sure whatever machine you buy has high frequency start.
thanks for the heads up bro! I havent been able to find anything on the actual tips beyond brand specific part numbers the chinesium units use. but if they mostly use the same thing that makes it much simpler to figure out which ones to get and not end up with 100 of the wrong thing.
For reference, I put in an offer of 232 on a plasmargon cut60hf-p since I found one cut65hf for 211 without the pilot arc. If this thread is still up when I get the counter offer I'll update you.
pilot arc is what chinks call high frequency start. Dont get one without it.
Get hobart only because that is my wage cage
have anything in the 60 amp range that isn't hypertherm price?
Harbor freight sells a decent budget plasma cutter.
t. fabricator for 20 years.
Take this nonsense to LULZ those retards will explain why your question is retarded. Also, it does not sound like you know what you are talking about, or enough to run a successfull bidness making parts. Design on cad and send to china for cheap slave labor.
And here I thought everyone in this thread was proving they’re underaged losers who have never worked a day in their life
I've had good results with the Schofield 211-V plasma cutter.
Honestly no idea, welding is not something i know but maybe someone here knows
You need to ask LULZ,
this board is mostly bagholders who think once their shitcoin will go up their "real life"will begin
