Many of you will be aware of this, but I'm sure some won't know that you can bevel plate with a plasma cutterto form a prep prior to welding. A customer of mine had several meters of bevel to create on some Strenx700 hardened steel. I have a bevelling machine (high speed tct milling cutter basically on a carriage, but that couldn't cope with the harder material and spat half its teeth out) so here is plan B which actually removed the stock a hell of a lot faster. Even allowing for the fact it will need a clean up with a grinder before it can be welded this proved to be a real time saver. The underside looks a little rough due to dross (which is very easy to remove) and a couple of slips here and there due to the learning curve. The client however was very happy as the alternative was a long time hanging off the back of a 9" grinder, not something anyone looks forward to. Hope this saves someone else a bit of time and effort and gets a job out the door faster, safer and more profitably. Have a good weekend folks.
