Sorry JOB, I didn't realize you were talking to me. I use the modern view, so if you don't call me out by name I sometimes miss when I'm being talked to. I have a Hypertherm 1250, but as Stick welding says that cut wasn't made with a plasma. It was made with propane & oxygen.

Sounds like we practice a lot of the same methods stick man. A thin, sharp kerf with a very very slightly sweeping drag lines are always the best looking cuts in my opinion. Not quit as step as a production cut but just a hair.

Puddles, that's a darn good cut for propane!
Acetylene is ridiculously priced there too? The
explosion at the carbide plant was 2 years ago but I
think they're milking as long as people are willing
to pay insane prices for acetylene. I shouldn't say
this but there's huge margins in industrial gasses
because there's only 4 major producers in the world.
About 30/35 years ago, there was a class action suit
for price fixing of industrial gasses up here. There
was some pretty big fines imposed.
