I am ready to purchase a plasma cutter, I have a paying copper project coming up where it will be needed. Either a Hypertherm 600 or a TD Cutmaster51 are my choices. The 600 says that it cuts a little thicker material, and will go with that one if there isn't something else to sway me towards the Cutmaster 51.
In doing my research on GoogleGroups, I've read where Ernie and others have commented that the cut kerf is thinner with the TD machine, but nobody has actually given any measurements. I'm curious, what is the kerf dimensions we're talking about here. The brochures for the machines don't say anything about cut kerf. Since I will be using this mainly for copper art type stuff this might be important for me. I'd welcome any and all comments.
