The thing cuts 1/4 steel like butter and I don't even have it cranked up. With thin steel like a barrel, you can literally lay out a straight edge and drag the torch just like a pen, same speed too.
Plasma cutters are awesome. I've used mine to make Christmas ornaments out of old torsion springs. I cut the coils apart and then weld them back together in the design I want. I've done reindeer, snowmen and Mickey's. I've recently gotten a TIG welder and hope to get better at welding than with a MIG welder.

One of these days, I would like to try my hand at tig. It makes some pretty welds.

Been down on my hands and knees banging together a new floor for the house. But I first had to take up the carpet and glued down parquet flooring. Oh what a joy that is. I bought a long handled pneumatic chisel that is doing a pretty good job at prying up the old parquet. It's still a job but much better than doing it by hand.

Here's what I've accomplished so far. Wife has set the deadline for Nov. 1st. That's when she wants to start decorating for the holidays. Wish me luck.
