    Yes my plan is to build a plasma table . . . and that was square tube, not square "hles" . .

    You typically need a higher rated plasma cutter for the same material due to the speed . . .

      I think a good drill press and some high stands to hold the material will do better for you unless you plan on doing heavy repair in witch case to steel max mag drill I found to be one of the best around, it self lubes down the center of the angular bit, the magnet holds at half power till the switch is turned on to save the magnet,and it rides on a rail type system witch is easy to maintain, and it's light

        i agree w/ everyone else... a porta-mag is not what you want... my milwaukee's magnet doesn't hold worth a crap on 3/16".


        even a $149 delta bench top drill press would do this job better than a $1000+ mag drill.

        basically my milwaukee mag drill needs 3/8" steel to "stick" to, try to use it on thinner material and you'll just start shattering those $60 bits.

          And after lifting these 75 lb sections up to your freestanding drill press, just think of what your biceps and triceps will look like! You'll save money from the gym membership for sure.
