Recommend a Plasma Cutter
I need a plasma cutter and can't afford a name brand. I need to cut 3/8" and sever 1/2" Any suggestions?

I was able to get it for $500 which is a damn sight cheaper than any well made newer system I could find.

If you buy an off brand I would also buy enough replacement consumables to last a a year or two. Which should be the lifetime of the unit. That will give you enough time to save for a good name brand. But then I would have to agree with the rest. Buy once and do it right.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
