Eastwood Plasma Cutter 40 Amp Versa-Cut is rated 4.5882 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine Easy set up,good clean cuts,easy to use. Get an air dryer and your set. I cut 1/2" plate with it,had to go slow but it cut it just fine. Great machine if you're a beginner or just a hobbyist,probably need something a little bigger for larger jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Amazing Picked up my Plasma today. Took it right out of the box, made all the connections and was cutting right away. I have used industrial plasma cutters and for the price and voltages being used this unit works perfect. Could not be happier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tool! Cutting floor pans for a 70 Chevelle. It just makes the nicest cuts. Was using a cutting wheel but this tool is worth every penny. Don't hesitate if you have metal to cut. Good price. It works great. What are you waiting for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I work for a large restoration company and we needed a plasma cutter for fabrication needs. Works well, but I would not transport it regularly due to the cheaply made housing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so on this purchase I've been wanting my own cutter for some time now, and decided it was time to buck up. This cutter seemed like a good deal, even though I know it's made in the land of China. The unit looks good right out of the box, and after some assembly and reworking the positive lead ring terminal per instructions, I had it up and running. The first thing to note is that it is LOUD when it's cutting. It has a very high pitched whistle or scream. Loud enough that I should probably wear hearing protection, and for sure I'm annoying the neighbors when I'm making cuts later in the evening. I adjusted the air pressure and amperage down to get really nice cuts. (Light sheet metal) About the 10th cut, the pilot arc started refusing to work... I checked the tips and they look fine. I tried turning the air pressure down more per the help section of the instructions, but that doesn't help. The tips look fine, and should last a LOT more than 10 cuts anyway! It still makes cuts fine , but you have to be right near the metal to keep the arc going. I will agree that most people will want the extended tips. The torch is fairly wide, and the tip pretty flush to the end, so getting into corners is difficult. In all, this plasma cutter works, but I'm not terribly pleased with my purchase. Hopefully Tech can resolve my pilot arc issue. I'm curious if the rest of you have noted the screaming... I kinda think not, since it is VERY loud... perhaps I have a bad torch or something...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Piece of Equipment! I'm very pleased with the Versa-Cut plasma cutter. I'm an artist. When I first used a plasma cutter, at The Maine College of Art, I found a completely new world of art open up to me. In short order, I knew I had to have a plasma cutter in my studio. When it came time to purchase one I read every review of every plasma cutter that cost up to $1,200. I was prepared to spend about $700 on a cutter. ( My theory is, it's good to read about the more expensive models to know if you need to step up to that level or not. And they often include information about less expensive and less powerful models.) I work primarily with 1/8" and 3/16" steel. I basically use the plasma cutter to etch and cut through steel. I needed a plasma cutter that would be able to cut rather quickly and fluidly. I am so pleased to say that the Versa-Cut is wonderful in that regard. I first opened it and used it with 110 VAC. It cut thin stuff really well, but even 1/8" took some patience. Oh, it would cut it, but not cleanly, nor in one pass. I didn't have 220VAC in my garage yet, so I took it to a friend's house and tried it out, enough to know, YES! This is a great machine. It moved through 3/16" easy, even 1/4". I have since put 220VAC to my garage and am cutting like a mad man. Why did I decide on an Eastwood Versa-Cut, especially since it wasn't one of the ones I initially looked at. I'm not certain if I should mention other brands here, so I won't, but after reading reviews, calling dealers, comparing features, price, and warranties, the Eastwood came out in front. One feature that was very important to me was that the plasma cutter have a pilot arc, as I often cut through rusty metal. I found that the more I looked, the more difficult it came to make a decision on which cutter to purchase. Reviews varied on the lower end models. I'd feel strongly about a model, then read some negative reviews and I'd be back to square one. I finally called dealers around the country about any model I was considering purchasing. They were very helpful in steering me away from several models and companies. A few dealers told me not to purchase the models they'd been dealers for, as they'd had nothing but problems with those models or the companies that made them. (They'd cut their ties with those companies, but the manufacturers websites still showed them as dealers.) The only 2 draw backs to this amazing machine are: 1) I needed to purchase an air compressor that could deliver 5-7 CFM @85PSI. That turned out to cost about as much as the plasma cutter. I ended up purchasing the Makita MAC5200. It's oil lubricated, relatively quiet, and it works really well with this machine. 2) I wish the ground cord was as long as the cord for the cutting gun. Still, I'm happy as can be with this great piece of equipment.

About Eastwood Plasma Cutter 40 Amp Versa-Cut

This innovative, affordable, plasma cutter was designed and developed by Eastwood's own R&D staff, and tested in-house on the same type of real-life projects you'll use it for. It doesn't matter where you need to work, because this plasma cutter's voltage-sensing technology lets you use either a 110v or 220v outlet with our adapter cord. Works with any standard home- or shop-type air compressor within a range of 20-65 psi; internal moisture separator ensures dry air is delivered to the torch. Rated 140 volts at 40 amps. Duty cycle: 60% at 40 amps. Weighs less than 30 lbs., for easier portability.

What is "Plasma Cutting"? Plasma cutting utilizes a high-velocity jet of ionized gas (plasma) that conducts electricity from the torch of the plasma cutter to your metal workpiece. That directed plasma stream (about 30,000 degrees F) heats the workpiece, converting the metal to molten slag. That high-velocity stream literally blows the molten metal away, leaving clean, precisely cut metal.


Includes: Versa Cut 40 unit, torch assembly, ground clamp assembly, 110/220V adapter cord. Agreat addition to your Plasma cutter is the Plasma guide 13689.
