Plasma Cutter Review | TIG Time
In this episode of TIG Time we aren’t doing and hands on welding, or even plasma cutting. What we are doing is taking a look at some things you should consider when purchasing a plasma cutter.

—————————————————————————– welding videos are a series of welding shows that are loaded with welding tips, tricks and hints that will help you drop that perfect bead every time! Whether you are trying to become better in the areas of TIG Welding, MIG Welding, Stick Welding or Cutting; has what you need. All videos are shot from “behind the hood” so you can get the welders perspective. In addition to showing you how to weld, many times we will show you common mistakes and how to avoid them.

How to plasma cut metal like a CNC machine with a hand held plasma cutter Plasma Glide demo by Barb

How to plasma cut metal like a CNC machine with a hand held plasma cutter Plasma Glide demo by Barb
To demonstrate the ease of use of the Plasma Glide I used it for the first time on video to cut a scorpion out of 16 gauge steel using a template. This machine is incredible and is a game changer for small shops without the room and budget for a larger more expensive CNC plasma cutting table.

In this video Rob will go over the differences between oxy-fuel welding vs plasma cutting.

Oxy-fuel welding (commonly called oxyacetylene welding, oxy welding, or gas welding in the U.S.) and oxy-fuel cutting are processes that use fuel gases and oxygen to weld and cut metals, respectively. French engineers Edmond Fouché and Charles Picard became the first to develop oxygen-acetylene welding in 1903.[1] Pure oxygen, instead of air, is used to increase the flame temperature to allow localized melting of the workpiece material (e.g. steel) in a room environment. A common propane/air flame burns at about 2,000 °C (3,630 °F), a propane/oxygen flame burns at about 2,500 °C (4,530 °F), and an acetylene/oxygen flame burns at about 3,500 °C (6,330 °F).

Oxy-fuel is one of the oldest welding processes, besides forge welding. Still used in industry, in recent decades it has been less widely utilized in industrial applications as other specifically devised technologies have been adopted. It is still widely used for welding pipes and tubes, as well as repair work. It is also frequently well-suited, and favored, for fabricating some types of metal-based artwork. As well, oxy-fuel has an advantage over electric welding and cutting processes in situations where accessing electricity (e.g., via an extension cord or portable generator) would present difficulties; it is more self-contained, in this sense — hence “more portable”.In oxy-fuel welding, a welding torch is used to weld metals. Welding metal results when two pieces are heated to a temperature that produces a shared pool of molten metal. The molten pool is generally supplied with additional metal called filler. Filler material depends upon the metals to be welded.

In oxy-fuel cutting, a torch is used to heat metal to its kindling temperature. A stream of oxygen is then trained on the metal, burning it into a metal oxide that flows out of the kerf as slag.[2] Sometimes called a “Gas Axe”.

Torches that do not mix fuel with oxygen (combining, instead, atmospheric air) are not considered oxy-fuel torches and can typically be identified by a single tank (Oxy-fuel cutting requires two isolated supplies, fuel and oxygen). Most metals cannot be melted with a single-tank torch. As such, single-tank torches are typically used only for soldering and brazing, rather than welding.

In this video I want to answer the age old question… Can you cut your finger off with a plasma cutter? Plasma is in your blood right?
I guess you’ll have to watch the video to find out.

I need a way to make clean and repeatable cuts with my plasma cutter. A CNC is a great answer that I don’t have space for. Here is a compact and inexpensive solution to the problem. It is more accurately named a pattern follower because you make plywood patterns that it can cut over and over again.
