Looks good MC. No shop should have to go without a plasma cutter. Have you been using one of those for a while?

No, I just bought it today off our Snap On rep and somehow convinced them to put in a 220 for it.

Right on, very cool. You will love the plaz cutter for sure. They use a bit of air but work very good. Keep in mind though they blow lots of heat out with the sparks. Enough to slice through metal that is behind your cutting target.

Example: If you tried to slice the lower control arm bracket off the frame of your xj, you need to be careful with the angle of the tip because the plazma cutter will blow a hole right into the unibody frame. Also it blows sparks much farther than a typical torch so you need to be very careful with the direction you are blowing sparks. Because of the air they blow stuff everywhere, even right back at you. Just something to keep in mind when using the cutter.

They work super good and once you get used to how it operates then you will able to cut better with the plaz than you ever could with gas.

Should get plenty of practice tomorrow. Trailering in a scrap forester without a title to cut up. Gonna roll it over to our bodyshop since theyve got 220 over there already.

Sounds good and be sure to wear PPE. And, don't be afraid of posting a picture of your first Plazma Cutter burn. It will probably be a wrist, ankle, neck or maybe your upper thigh (through your pants pocket). Those darn sparks have a way of finding the craziest places to land.

J/K, have fun with your new toy.

Nah, my friend ended up having to watch his kids and my mom called me wanting to look at a WJ for her so that ate my day up.

That would taste delicious.

Best story of when I worked in a shop was when we ordered pizza for lunch one day and the last piece got dropped on the floor, another tech grabbed it, washed it with parts cleaner and ate it.

Can't wait to see you start to cut things MC.

Not trying to hack your thread but I remember awhile back you grenaded your rear yoke... I did the same to mine and was wondering if you had issues with your backlash or anything? I read the other day that if you remove the yoke on an 8.25 it can do just that... thanks in advance.

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

I unbolted mine and bolted the new one on in all of 10 minutes and havent had an issue since. I just backed up against a curb so nothing could move when I loosened it.
