    Kevin,

    Thanks for the reply and the welcome back! I've been checking in but not posting too much.

    I recently became unemployed (now self-employed) and have been working on ringing the cash register. Michigan's economy has been sucking buttermilk but I've been pretty lucky in scoring some decent jobs.

    I've also been volunteering at the local community college as the welding lab technician. I get to spend a lot of time making things needed for the lab and I get to use any of the tools in the lab (press brake, pan brake, shear, ironworker, plasmacam, powdercoating system) for my own use. It has really worked out great.

    Thanks for the link on the compressor, I checked it out right away. That is a great compressor. Great specs for the plasma (and the construction that I also do). I should have it by the end of the week. What little extra cash I have has been going into equipment. Just got a blast cabinet from TP Tools with an air dryer from Eaton Compressors (to go with my Quincy 80gal compressor) etc, etc.

    Well back to work!

    I was able to get it from my local Airgas at close to the $1185 (with case) that IOC sells it for.

    I tested it out at the welding lab just after I purchased it. It is sweet! Metal artists (like James) would really like the power and portability of this unit.
    Bob, congrats on the new unit and welcome back! It seems like it has been a while since you posted.

    That is good you were able to get it local for a reasonable price. I really like mine as I never need to cut much over 1/4" for most of the work I do. My Cutmaster takes up the slack from there. The portability of the 375 Xtreme is faubulous and the case is nice for transport in the back of the truck.

    I ended up getting a nice little Makita compressor for on the road and it is working nicely. I bought it local but here is a link to it.

    It works great and is easy to transport and move around.

    Nice to see you back.

    I'm waiting on some owed money to come in and then I'll have one. $1185 with the extreme case from B&R, over $200 less than my lws was willing to do.

    wow only $1168 for the 375 extream and $1090 for the rgular 375, i was expecting a bigger $$ diference. i know i would save up the extra $80 to go extream.
    now i realy want to upgrade.

    I was told that they are on limited release throughout the US and will be on full release to suppliers on or about Sept. 15 FWIW. Sure does seem like a nice unit, will be interesting to see if the Spectrum's go for reduced prices with release of the new unit.

    I actually got to see one of the Extremes today. Nice little box. The hard case is pretty big, but no doubts about whether or not it will protect it. Airgas had it at $1230.40, just a little more than a hundred bucks more than the old 375...not too bad, IMO. It will no doubt be much less online.
