    Purchase the most expensive one you can afford. Go with a brand name. You implied you have a business to run so that means you will be using it more often than the hobby shop user. If I ever purchase another one it will be one that cuts thru 1" at least. My Hobart air-force is a very good piece of equipment, but there are times I need to cut thru thicker material, such as 3/8 or greater. Thats when I reach for the O/A bottles. Effective yes, but slower and messier. Plasma is quicker, and cleaner.

    You are very correct but the original post wreaks of spam to me as does the reply.
    Thanks for reading/listening.

    I reported both posts this morning. Surprised they are still here. Obvious spam.

    Try your plasma on 3-6" material and see how quick and clean it is!
