I think the MagneGas needs a hydrogen type regulator instead of an Acetylene regulator.
I have to agree about the plasma cutter...it was my first metalworking machine even before a welder. I watched one in use 15 years before I bought one and was facinated by how it operated. When the chance to purchase one came up I just bought it and then learned how to use it... Now I have two..... and several machines that make re-assembling those cut up pieces of metal simpler...LOL
I never liked O/A tanks & torches and still don't,but there are times that an O/A torch rig would be handy to heat metal for bending or to heat rusted things for disassembly and some things might be easier cut with an O/A rig. Have you used the Multi Plaz as a heating source in this way? Not having access to one I'm just wondering if this is possible with the Multi Plaz torch.
Around the shop though a plasma cutter is a plug and go item,so as long as they make electricity it works for most everything I do.
I guess that's one reason I'm facinated by the Multi Plaz unit and why I'm following this with interest. I was always around the various cutting welding machines/tools my whole life,but never involved in a hands on way until a few years ago... I just didn't know what I was missing. I'm still wondering how I made it this far before learning how to use the various metalworking tools I now own. I'm still learning everytime I use one and cussing myself because I remember all the times in years gone by that I depended on someone else to fix or build something for me...
The point is I'm not so set in my ways about different methods of fabrication that I can't be curious about a 'new' method of accomplishing an end result... It allows me the freedom to think outside that old school box and be curious about new technology like the Multi Plaz. It might not be for everyone,but then it might be the new way to go too.... It has to be tried and researched to determine that though and I won't dismiss it as a process without giving it a fair shake.
I never cared for stick welding when younger,but now I own 4 stick machines that all have different qualities and I'm really enjoying the process now. My little 100A DC inverter is a wonder...it surprises me everytime I pick it up at 7.5# to fix something. Most of the oldtime welders that see it laugh at it until I force them to try it out... most of them are stunned and keep looking at it like it's a voodo doll.... New technology! My AC welder weighs 400# and Yes it will weld big things,but then most things aren't big or thick so the 100A unit can do it.
So keep us updated on the Multi Plaz Ian, It's new,It's different,& It might be more usable than anyone seems to think....I'm still facinated by it...
