    Hi Squig.... just bought some 4 1/2" off ebay at a good price and curious to know how thick a material you cut with them (curves, etc.)

Being a pipefitter , I use a torch mostly on the job and do not have a lot of exprience with plasma cutters .
    Hey Lu47Dan; I use the 2050 all the time instead of the torch even doing pipe work. Power it off from my miller 250 trailblazer. Things that I wanted when I bought the 2050 was being able to cut stainless, alumimun, and steel along with being able to be portable, and being able to handle material immediately. Never used it's scarfing feature since I use an air arc alot also. Will use a torch when you have to reach into a bad area that the plasma can't get too and also if I have a lot of heavy metal to burn. If you plan on using a plasma in the field, remember the weigh that you will have to handle. Well worth the money if you have enough business to justify buying.

    this might not go over well here but i have had nothing but the best experience with hyperthrem 1000. in my opinion it is better than my 2050 miller. just plainly the best one i have used so far and i have used almost all of them.

    Default Update on the purchase of the Spectrum 2050 Plasma

    I bought the 2050 last summer , and really like it . I added a Motor Guard filter to it to keep the moisture and the dirt out of it . The 2050 has done everything I have asked it to do and I am well pleased with its performance . Like anything it had its learning curve . Dan

    That price doesnt sound right. I called, it sounds like they are out of stock but the service rep sounded kind of confused??

    Zip Cut disks are Gods best friend! So be careful with them or you might meet God in person! Make sure you wear the proper protective gear, when those blades come apart its nasty. That said they truly are great! I use them all the time.
