I just received my Spectrum 375 plasme cutter, and had to test drive it. I'm home schooling myself in metal working and to be honest was surprised at how it slices and dices steel - like butter. I had been using a high speed Makita angle grinder for all of my cuts for the last two years.

Thanks to Rickey D for the plasma cutting pan idea - unfortunately - my crappy welds leak. The leaks are more of an insult - about one drop every 4 hours... I coulda and shoulda switched to solid wire and C25 gas - I got lazy and used the flux cored wire that was already loaded.

Now I'll TIG the seams on the pan - it's only 18" X 18".
