Be aware of your sparks too. If your garage is like most garages and that you share yours with you wife car and stuff; you can easily cause some damage to you garage and home.
Plasmas are great for cutting and for starting fires.
Just my 2 cents....
Absolutely. Normally I move her vehicle out before working, and just about everything else that people normally put in a garage (especially flamables) has been moved to a garden shed. I started about a year ago slowly progressing my "garage" to a "shop" which my wife can still park in. Basically, my side is 100 percent work space while her side is part-time extra workspace.
