Over and over this group reccomends the Thermal Dynamics Plasma cutters.
I was about to purchase a Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 51, alas as I was searching for the best price I found the
Thermal Dynamics Drag Gun Plus.... Looks like similar specs with the built in air compressor...
Other units with the built in air compressors have looked like toys, alas this one claims to do a quality cut on 1/2" (13mm) steel.
Does anyone have any experience with this? If the two units are close in perfromance the hassle reduction of not having to run an air hose would be worth some minor loss in capability. this is for serious hobby use, not industrial fabrication.\
