    I don't really want to spend $2,000.00 and more to cut 1/2 inch mild steel.
    any thoughts?

    yeah, hypertherm is my upper limit.
    really hoping the LOTOS machine would measure up at half the cost.
    maybe I just need to PAY UP!!

    If you can`t justify a real plasma (Hypertherm) maybe farm all your cutting needs out to someone that has one.

    I am old fashioned if it is not Aluminum or Stainless I go for my Oxy- Fuel torch first.

    The only difference being turn on the torch or flip the switch of my Hypertherm
