Interesting!
Do you still use the PlasmaCAM?

I have a plasmaCam table and yes it takes a learning curve. I do as I want and cut all sorts of metal. Some takes more work after cutting - some not needing it and some it doesn't matter.
I have a Hypertherm 600 and cut 1/2" armor plate that is pre-hardened. It is rated for normal hot rolled. But I know the machine and ability.
Wish I had a 1000 but didn't have 3phase at the time.
I suspect the plasma cutter you had was a limiting machine. Good for body work and such but not brackets or thick stuff.

I have a Powermax 1000 and I don't have three phase. The CE country version of the 1000 is three phase only, the US version is single or three phase and wide input range. It takes a 50A 240V 1ph feed quite happily.

I have a Max 100 and that one cuts one inch plate... Takes three phase only...

The 1000 is rated 1" cut, 1.25" sever, and will do so with either 1 or 3 ph power.

Thanks Pete - I think I knew that.
I have 3 phase 380v in the shop as well as single phase 240. Handy sometimes.
