    The Powermax30 AIR is a great machine and one of the only true 30 amp machines I would buy with a built in compressor. Is there a reason you're buying a machine with a built in compressor? You get a lot more bang for your buck with just a regular plasma cutter. For the amount you pay, you could buy yourself a compressor as well.

    Hypertherm as a brand has been great for me. I have a couple of their machines and have been very please with them. We do a lot of metal art work and the Powermax30 XP with the fine tip consumables works great for us. No problems and super happy with the performance. Our little 30amp hypertherm cuts the same as our cheaper 50 amp machines.

    I had it. I think it is awesome, however, it is a bit difficult for newbies.

    For those that are interested in the 30AIR, Harris Welding Supply has them on sale at $1205. Anything I purchase will be on sale shortly afterward.
    Just my luck.

Now a CNC plasma or using it on thin sheets or stainless is a different story. But just to get a plasma because everyone has one sorry I will keep my ox/acet rig. Just my thoughts..Bob
    Pretty much the same here. If I didn't do lots of aluminum, I probably wouldn't care about having the plasma cutter. The oxy/acetylene torch is definitely more useful.

    I have always respected your opinions Bob, your welding wisdom like many here is the hands on kind. Without a torch setup I would be like a fish out of water.
