Got my Colassal Tech CUT50F Plasma Cutter w/pilot arc today.
So far so good. Only made one cut so far and did it on dirty 4x1/4 angle at the bend so it was thicker than 1/4" and dirty. Did I mention it was dirty? Set it at 48 amps and 75 PSI and it blew right threw it. This is a 208/220 only unit that I am running at 248 volts on my Diesel standby generator. I expect it will get better as I get more practice and cut some clean steel with a guide.
Here is a pic of the first cut.
Not too much slag on the under side.
Unit comes with a 7-1/2' power cord and a 12' torch lead. You have to add the plug. The only negatives I've found so far is the hose fitting and gauge did not seem to be standard pipe thread and the fat torch tip and guide won't let you cut close to the wall on a piece of angle. The gauge and hose fitting bottomed out in the regulator and it leaks a little air around the gauge. Of course the gauge bottomed out with the scale upside down but that's no biggie. I think the threads in the regulator are standard because my quick coupler I supplied on the inlet screwed in as it should and sealed fine. I suppose on the angle you could cut from the back side if you want to get closer to the bend.
I paid $309 for the cutter with 6 sets of extra consumables. It was a little higher than some of the other pilot arc units but this seller has 100% rating with NO negatives and says they honor the 1 year warranty in house. Seller has not given me feedback yet so no feedback or plug for them.
Here's a couple of pics of the unit. I forgot to take one of the face but it just has the connections and the amp setting. Pressure is only on the regulator gauge which is all you need. It's a much smaller footprint than most welders so it doesn't take up all the room on the HF welder cart I put it on. It sits low so I put a piece of baseboard trim behind it to give the cord and air hose room to get over the lip of the cart.
