Agreed. Need a bigger plasma cutter!

Doing it with the holes/grinder cutting wheel you wouldn't need to cut apart your welds. I'll bet the gouging mode on my Powermax 45 would be perfect for that though! If you were closer I'd be down to help you out with that.

Ah. I gotcha. I was thinking you meant drill/cut holes for new mounting plates. That could be a good fix though. As a bonus, might distort the baseplates back to flatness.
