Plasma Cutter Buyer's Guide: Picking The Best One to Suite Your Needs
If you’re considering buying a plasma cutter, it’s probably because you’re doing metal fab or working on a car and you want a really easy way to cut different types of metal. A plasma cutter can slice through any conductive metal like steel, aluminum or stainless. Plus, you’ll have nice clean cuts whether the metal is thick, thin or even rusty. Another advantage of a plasma cutter is that there’s no more need for gas bottles like you have with an oxy-acetylene torch. This simplifies the cutting process and reduces safety risks. There are several plasma cutters available at Eastwood for auto mechanics, and here we’ll help you find the one that best fits your needs.
Whether you are tackling a restoration project or are fabricating parts and panels for a custom build, you need a plasma cutter. A plasma cutter allows you to quickly make clean cuts in metal from as thin as sheet metal, up to thick plate.
Eastwood's line of Versa-Cut® Plasma Cutters are professional-quality tools made to help you craft precision pieces of metal to the exact specifications you need for a project.
Eastwood Plasma Cutter for Sale
Getting a great weld starts with having two good pieces of metal to join together. Eastwood Versa-Cut plasma cutters are designed for effortlessly slicing ferrous and non-ferrous metals so you can fabricate them as needed. These cutters use an electric arc to heat up a high-speed cutting gas, converting it into a plasma form that cuts through molten metal cleanly and quickly. For precision metal work in straight lines, angles or curves, shop Eastwood to get professional quality at a DIY price.
