Yipes. I like working with electricity and all but those voltages and currents are way too dangerous for my tastes. Plasma cutters are getting cheaper all the time. You can find them new for less than $400 shipped.

I'm waiting to buy one from titan. If we get enough people to pony the dough, we can get a group buy from a company I am on good terms with.

Interesting -- but like thedude says -- getting cheaper all the time. I totaled up the prices on the page and it came to aprx 298 - and there was stuff not priced yet. It's just one of those things not worth the time to make becuase the price point is not there. Spend the extra 150 and your in business-IMHO

Cheers

Has anybody ever used one of those combo plasma cutters/stick/tig welders?
