    Here is something that came up locally. Might be something to consider. Might be too big for your current phase converter, i don't know. If you want me to check it out send me a pm.

    Are you on a phone? I find that links rarely work when I am on my phone. Things like photobucket and such. Perhaps this is the same problem.

    Default a little update

    Sorry its been so long since a follow up but the results on hooking up compressed med air to the plazma was astounding. I used Harris nitrogen two stage regulator and swapped out the nipple to fit the air cylinder. Used a 5/16 push lock hose with JIC fittings. I noticed zero pressure drop on the work side while cutting (had a buddy watch the work side of the gauge). The down fall to this consumption. Cylinder started full at 2600 and fell to 2300 in about 10 mins worth of cutting. I'm sure I could have conserved some but was kinda in a hurry. Its worth doing in my opinion. Consumables should last a lot longer.

    The med air was cheap (free ;-) about 3 bucks for the Jic fittings, $15 dollars for the nipple (CGA-346), Im gonna guess 70-90 bucks for the reg- Harris 447-200-CR Pipeline. (already had it and I'm sure a good oxy reg would work). Its a single stage, sorry thought it was dual in my follow up. Had some left over push lock female jic fittings from a previous job with about 5 foot of hose so that was another free bee. So if I was guessing if you had to buy it all you'd be in the 150-200 dollar range. Just a rough estimate.

    Med air thing is good for portable work also, but not every day.
    I use a small air compressor little jobs. With a full tank it ran my big plasma for short cuts.
    As I write this my new Champion Air Compressor (Aug.2013) is in the repair shop with a blown head gasket.
    Now when I have a big job I plug in my 302 Air Pak and fill all the booster tanks and run till the pressure is to low then Air Pak it back up.
    Sometimes a small back up air compressor is a good thing.
    Good Luck,
