I tried a nice Plasma Cutter at welding class tonight, and it is very nice for cutting metal. For sheet metal, even at lowest settings, it is quite a bit of overkill. I could only get 1/8" wide cut, and ragged at that (lack of practice). I think a nice $200 air compressed die grinder would do much better than $1000 plasma cutter for working on cars. JMHO.
Getting much better at sheet metal welding. I welded up those nasty plasma cutter cuts as a butt joint. The instructor said if I could do that (and I was), then a nice, straight butt joint would be a piece of cake. Woohoo! Rusty frame rails: here I come!
