Plasma cutter for CNC

Postby galuu » 22 Feb 2016, 19:05

I am making a CNC plasma cutter. What are your experiences with hand held plasma cutters? What low price cutters would you recommend? I would need one for cutting from 1,5 mm to 5 mm thick sheets. Thank you

Low budget plasmas are know to cause quite big problems with its EMI.
I cannot guarantee nothing, but the experience that we have with cheap plasmas, we would not recommend it.
