First time plasma cutter user
I'd been making different targets and having to order silhouettes online. Thought I'd try making my own so I bought a beginner plasma cutter. Reviews were kind on it. 110/220 I did get the 110 adapter but will need to make one to plug into the existing 220 in the garage. Harbor Freight had a welding cart that with a little modification I was able to put the wire feed welder underneath and the cutter on top. Added a outlet in the back so both could power off the cart. With a 25 foot power cord I can roll it outside my garage for cutting. I'll see how it goes. Hints or suggestions are welcome. I've used a gas cutting torch in the past this kind is new to me.
Well, I found out the 110 option trips breakers well. I had it turned down all the way and it still tripped a 15 amp garage breaker. Soooooo, off to Home Depot to make a 220 extension cord.
Keep in mind this is my very first attempt and the metal was a little too thick for the setting I was forced to use.
Decided to try a simpler cut out.
I'll play with it more when I get a 220 supply worked out. Kinda fun. 😀
More plasma cutting adventures. I did make a 220 extension cord so I could run it at a higher amp. Worked much better. Still getting the hang of it but I like it much more than a gas torch.
My son loves to get a crow in his sights so I made this for him. I like the white because you can see where the pellet hits.
The mount bar is removable on the base and bird for compact transport.
