I finally bought myself a plasma cutter! Woohoo!

Being that it's just for home use on the odd automotive project, I never could bring myself to spend serious money on a name brand unit. A good friend bought a 40A Chinese unit 10 or 11 years ago for +/- $600 and it's still in service (has needed minor repairs) and I just assumed that was still the bottom of the market. Heck, Harbor Freight's goes for $669. Then I got an email from Jeg's and saw their rebranded 40A plasma cutter for $233! Of course, I knew Jeg's didn't actually make it, so I did some digging and found the identical "Cut40" for $169.

That got me wondering how cheap a unit with pilot arc could be had (you still have to scratch the other high frequency units to get them to start, no fun when cutting over crusty, non-conductive junk/paint/rust, or expanded metal.) I ended up going with a <$250 "Cut50P" 50A unit with pilot arc, should be able to cut 1/2" allegedly in a single pass, which is the thickest I've ever needed to cut at home. I haven't got it setup yet, but I'm looking forward to using it on a long overdue project I've been avoiding on my K5!

Here's the one I bought: https://www.ebay.com/itm/50A-Plasma-....c100891.m5206 I was glad to see that it came with a much nicer torch than what's shown in the ebay pics too. I do plan to open the case and inspect/clean up all the wiring and air lines/connections before I ever put power to it.

Nice Jato! What tires are you going to run?

I’m running that same reedy motor in the Capra, too.

The rest of y’all have made some cool purchases too! Laser cutter, vfd’s, a trail king. Very cool.

They're already mounted to Pit Bull Rock Beast XL's in Alien flavor. See the wheel pics thread if you want to see them mounted.

I've had these Pit Bull tires for a long time. I got them on a huge Black Friday sale or something from Pitbull. The tires sat in bags and the Alien Kompound looks and feels less than stellar. If I end up not liking them I'll go with Proline Hyrax in Predator compound.

Picked these up for my 200, didn't like how the front plate sat against the paint and put a foam pad on that when I bought the car and happened to see Matt Farah hocking them on his Youtube Channeland decided to buy a couple for the 200.

It's been dormant for a long time. I think I'm going to sell it rather than finish it.

Made a stop at Hobby Lobby today and picked up some of these paints to try out at some point.


I already have a can of their Galaxy Purple from an earlier visit.
