It’s time to ditch the grinder wheel and spring for the best plasma cutter your money can buy! We’ve researched and reviewed some of the best-selling plasma cutters for home use to help you find the perfect addition to your workshop. But before you slice into our reviews, take a look at these specs to keep in mind for choosing a plasma cutter!
Output Voltage - Higher output voltage means a faster, cleaner cut, and is usually higher at 220V power supplies than 110V.
Frequency - Choose a compatible Hz to avoid blowouts! Generally, that’s 60Hz in the US and 50Hz in Europe and elsewhere.
Cutting Thickness - How much can the cutter slice through in one pass? Check out the cutting thickness spec to compare!
Output Current - Measured in Amps (A), higher levels generally mean greater one-pass cutting thickness and quality cuts.
Input Power - Measured in KVA (kilo-volt-amperes), this spec helps you figure out the capacity for driving circuits to use with your cutter.
Dimensions - If you’re lucky enough to have a huge workshop, you can probably ignore the size spec of a plasma cutter!
