What to look for

We won’t blindly tell you that buying a cheap plasma cutter is a good idea because in a lot of instances it really isn’t, depending on what it is you need to do with it, why there are several factors to consider.

The first thing to consider is the duty cycle that is measured in percentages of 10 minutes. If your plasma cutter is rated with a duty cycle of 60%, it can go on for 6 minutes out of 10.

If you’re planning on using it in your garage, or anywhere else for that matter, you need to make sure that the model you’re getting is compatible with the outlets in your house, since some models only run on 220 v, and not the usual 110 v.

Additionally, we encourage you to take a look at the cutting speed that is usually divided into the rated cut, quality cut and sever cut, with the rated cut being the highest quality of the three.

If you’re looking to move the machine around quite a bit, its portability is additionally important how big and heavy the machine is.

How do I choose a plasma cutter – what is the way to find a good option?

We won’t blindly tell you that buying a cheap plasma cutter is a good idea because in a lot of instances it really isn’t, depending on what it is you need to do with it, why there are several factors to consider.

The first thing to consider is the duty cycle that is measured in percentages of 10 minutes. If your plasma cutter is rated with a duty cycle of 60%, it can go on for 6 minutes out of 10.

Hobart AirForce 12ci

One of the more affordable plasma cutters on the market under $1,000, the Hobart AirForce 12ci is a great plasma cutter for people looking an option with a built in air compressor.

It is important to mention that this machine does not have a pilot arc, if that is a feature you know that you will come to love, or have been recommended to get. If you want that feature, you can click the link that we included.

Standing at 31 pounds, this is a very portable option to go with. it is, however, important to think about the fact that this is a cheaper model, and with it comes more limitations than if you were to go for another Hobart model like the AirForce 27i.

Check out our video review of this machine so you can see what to expect if this is the option you choose to go with.

If you’re planning on cutting mild steel up to 1/4 inch, this could be the model you’re looking for from a name in the industry that you can trust. It also has the advantage of cutting faster than using oxy fuel. It’s a nice entry into the market with longer-lasting XT tips, if you’re not a fan of having to worru about the various settings of oxy cutting, such as gas settings, metal pre-heating and flame tuning.

Hobart AirForce 27i

The Hobart AirForce 27i is one of the very popular plasma cutters offered by the renowned manufacturer by the same name, Hobart. While it does cost more than the AirForce 12ci, it also provides significantly more power, while being a slightly more affordable model than the AirForce 40i.

While we don’t want to sell you a model that is significantly more cutting power, and more expensive than what you’re after, it’s also important to realistically think about what you will be using it for, and how often you plan on using it, too. If you got a lot of needs, a cheap model may just end up annoying you more than it helps you.

However, we don’t want you to get a model that costs you so much more than what it would need to cost you and still get the power that you need.

This is additionally a multi-voltage machine allowing you to use either 120V or 240V, with cutting abilities as large as 5/8 for mild steel severed cuts, or clean 3/8 mild steel cuts.

If you’re a person who does not want to spend a lot of time cleaning up your cut, this can be a great choice for you.

Plasma Cutter Prices Exposed!

If you’re only now just starting to research plasma cutters, you’re probably wondering how much you should realistically be spending to find the one that best suits both your needs and your budget.

There are, however, a few things that you should be aware of. Yes, you may not need to buy a model from Thermal Dynamics, but it could all end up being both better for you and cheaper in the long run – it all depends on your needs.

There are very valid options on the lower end of the spectrum if you have very limited needs, such as those offered by Lotos – in fact our recommendation here on the site. Got limited needs, then go ahead and check out the LTP5000D that you can get for less than $500.

Thickness of the metal that you’re working with

Plasma cutters have different thickness they’re rated to be able to deal with, whether it is a clean cut or a severed cut. The issue about choosing a machine that is severance rated to be able to deal with the metal thickness you’ll most often be working with is that you will be spending a lot of time cleaning up the cut. It may just be a better idea to choose a better plasma cutter in the first place.

The price might be misleading

While it may be tempting to look at the price of the plasma cutter and say “oh, this is the one I think I need”, you should know that some machines will go through comsumables at a significantly more rapid pace than is the case for other machines.

Choosing a plasma cutter does not need to be hard, but those are just some of the things to keep in mind.

What thickness steel will a plasma cutter be able to cut?

When you are dealing with thinner pieces of metal, these tools are great, and if you have one of the better ones, they’ll be able to cut upwards of 1.5″, or the equivalent of 38 mm, although you will need to look at the way that it is advertised, and how thick the steel is they can handle. Each machine will usually advertise that they are able to handle an amount in a clean cut and a different thickness for a severed cut.

Why are these machines so expensive?

There is a lot of difference between the various models offered on this website that include the price tags that they come at, and some of them may definitely seem very expensive in comparison to others. However, when you are buying a more advanced plasma cutter, you’re not just buying a piece of equipment that is capable of far superior cutting, which in turn will mean that you have to spend less time on cleaning the cut, you will also see that these machines fare better in terms of offering better lifespan for the consumables that you will be using in the process.

If you do end up going with a lower grade model and you find yourself needing more, you will have to shell out a lot of money to upgrade it, and if you are using it on a continuous basis, you are also having to spend a significant amount of money on consumables which will add up over time.

Best Welders for Beginners — Top Picks & Reviews

Like most disciplines, welding requires you to master the basics first if you want to be good at it. Sadly, many beginners struggle to pull this off just because they bought the wrong welding tool. 

If you want your welding education to be off to a great start, you need a welding tool that is built for the beginner in mind. You’d want to avoid picking up welding tools that make the basics complicated. 

Many welders in the market can serve as a good gateway to the craft or discipline of welding. To help you find the welder that will set you on the right path, we’re giving you a list of our top picks and reviews.

Types of Welding Methods

But before we get there, ask yourself this question: What kind of welder do I need?

First off, it bears noting that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to welding. Different jobs require different welding processes. There are many welding methods, the most common of which being MIG welding, Flux-cored Arc Welding, TIG welding, and stick welding. To help you determine which welder is the right one for you, a breakdown of the different welding processes is in order. 

MIG Welding

MIG welding, otherwise known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), uses a wire electrode that is fed through a spooling gun at a pre-set speed. This process creates the arc that melts the wire and merges it with the base, which facilitates the production of strong, refined, and clean welds. 

Flux-cored Arc Welding 

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) facilitates the wire feeding process by using a flux-cored wire that protects the arc from contamination. It’s this protection that makes this the preferred welding method outdoors.

TIG Welding

TIG welding—also called Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW)—produces welds by using a non-consumable tungsten electrode. To protect the weld material from contamination, this welding process uses a shielding gas and a filler metal. While TIG welding is more difficult to learn, it’s the method that produces the most durable and precise welds.

Stick Welding

Stick welding uses a “stick” (otherwise known as an arc-welding electrode) that produces an electric current to weld metal pieces. This welding method is recommended for alloys and joints. It’s also the most affordable, making it the most popular welding method for home use.

Without further ado, here are the best welders for beginners.

1. Weldpro 200 Multi-Process Welder

If you’re new to welding, the Weldpro 200 Multi-Process Welder is just the thing to get you on the right track (and it doesn’t hurt that it’s very affordable). This welding machine comes with MIG, TIG, and Stick welding operations (at 200 amp output), so no need to buy more than one welding unit if you’re not going to stick with one welding process.

Thanks to the welding machine’s pre-set internal parameters, you don’t have to waste time trying to decide which settings are recommended for certain situations. While it’s still best that you adjust the more important settings (such as the heat settings) manually, not having to worry over other details can go a long way into helping you get things done much faster.

Most beginners struggle with the proper handling and maneuvering of the torch, but this unit does away with all of those by including a button that allows you to switch between manual wire feeding and automatic wire feeding on the fly. Since you don’t need to hold the trigger, you can focus on the torch, allowing you to create higher quality welds.
