    off topic; maxstar 150 is switchable and gets better power from 240V; just change the plug, white to silver lug for 115V. no open case, a few less screws and its easier to carry a plug with my 2 wheelr running gear than another cord.
    ps they have the funky 90 deg. tangs 115&240V, but are opposite if that makes any sence.

            Spectrum 375

            I have had mine for 6 months and cuts great at 220v, spend the time and a few bucks to convert from 110V, its like night and day. If you are cutting 1/4 daily, go for the bigger machine and avoid frustration and cursing a great plasma cutter for doing a job it is not really designed for.

I have rented a couple 110 plasma cutters in the past and they were great for sheet metal but I was not real happy with the 1/8 or thicker material, I am not very patient and really want something that will cut fairly quick
              Well we certainly found the spectrum 375 diasppointing for 1/4", but it is really nifty for exhaust pipes.

              We decided to make our next one 'BIG enough' and after thoughtfully considering the specs of the Spectrum 1000 (an 80 amp machine) and thte red box pro-cut 80 ordered up a read box just a couple of days ago. these big ones consume incredible amounts of electric power however. and need some serious review of electric supply issues.

              The 80 amp boxes seem to be all the rage for 2005, and although they will run on single phase, they sort of cry out for a 3 phase service. to run on single phase this unit needs a dedicated 100 amp 230 volt circuit and sort of concluded that we had capacity problems all the way back to the electric meter. since we lack 3 phase on the highline, this in turn led us to the conclusion that we should also put under the christmas tree a 3 phase capable welder with enough umf! to drive the thing and completely bypass the plug in the wall solution.

                I have a 625 and love it. Glad I didn't get a smaller machine. I use it for 20 gauge copper to 3/8" steel on a regular basis. It is a very good machine! 1/2" steel is easy, and 1/4" aluminum is like butter.

                BUT YOU MUST HAVE VERY DRY AIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                If you are not using a Very good air drier, Any machine will be disapointing.
