Sales personnel was very helpful. Machine arrived following day, very well packaged.

I will be using it for repair / fabrication work and think it will make it easier to achieve good profesional results. The enclosed instructions guides you through assembly and set up. The free foot pedal makes it a lot easier to use and makes a great value package. The quality is like the R Tech plasma cutter I've owned for the past 3 years without a hiccup unlike the plasma cutter from another well known *** company that started giving trouble after 1 year.

Using for hobby/small fabrication, great little AC/DC plant Recommend to everyone, and the quality seems great 👍🏻

Hobby use and learning with reference to your helpful videos. Friend. Excellent product.

Well built unit. Dials and switches very positive. Easy to use and set up good unit found having a 13amp plug brilliant for portability.
