Lincoln / Powertorch P20 Plasma Cutter

I just bought on Craigslist is Brand New, In BOX Powertorch P20 Plasma Cutter. This cutter is made by Harris for Lincoln electric. Model # K2682-1.


I STOLE this thing for $320 (well, at least I think I did as I found it on the net from anywhere between $950-$1130).

Have any of you ever used this or know anything about it? It is recommended for cutting 1/8" sheet metal, but says it will cut at a maximum 1/4". I basically tinker around in the garage and enjoy fabricating the occasional bumper and other thinks with metal approximately 3/16". Can you explain to me if there is a duty cycle or anything else for it. I have not opened it in case this is not the right type of cutter I am needing and I need to sell it.

Thanks for any input you may have.

I don't see it cutting 1/4 inch steel without gouging or for that matter 3/16 too.
It is reccomended to cut 1/8 for a reason,because it will not cut much more than that without gouging ,in other words looks like someone chewed it off..lol
You got a GREAT deal on it though,if i was you i would sell it on eBay,most of the time you can get 70-80% or more of the store prices for something if it is still unopened in the box,then buy a bigger more suitable Plasma-Arc
If you have the 220 supply,i would go with a 220 volt machine.
