    .070 is about as close as I can tell.. Get you real close anyway. The lower (Aluminum on the K-2000) pad unscrews on this unit. It has the holes in it. Might see if they would interchange with the K-4000 pad. Might be a simple/cool fix.. It's good for 450 amps..

    Still keep carbon arc for hard to get into areas but hardly ever use it anymore
    I use my plasma frequently for gouging as well.
    Problem is, the arc air set up costs 1/10th of what your plasma costs to buy.

    If your gouging a lot don't use your own machine. Rent one. It's a good way to burn your machine out. The rentals are recalibrated often cuz everyone uses them for gouging.

    Why not just buy a K2000 instead of messing with a K4000? Do you already own a K4000? The K2000 is plenty beefy enough for 3/16"/1/4" carbons. The K4000 is larger in physical size also. It would be overkill for running 3/16" carbons.

    See my post #3. You need a K2000 & it work well with your wheelbarrow compressor.
