    As said, worth a look ;)

    How does this Lidl thing work - do you purchase on line from the 13th or do you have to go to a local store? :dontknow:

    You go in for a loaf of bread and some milk and come out with it instead.

    No chance in London....there will be someone buying the lot to sell on eBay...

    Even if it's limited numbers per customer...they'll turn up with a dozen mates.

    What about your consumables? does a plasmacutter have those ( i am not familiar with such a tool).

    and, if yes, are they standardized? like your contacttips, nozzles et cetera on euro-torches and the likes?

    Guess which idiot thought it was Sunday and turned up at a quarter to ten...

    Our local Lidl opens at 8 in the week, I plan on camping overnight :)

    :thumbup:

    most of those chines welders are also for sale in some real stores overhere, so are their consumables. Propably they will sell the plasma consumables also.

    I hope to get one, have 5 or so lidls round here, so one of them should have stock for me.

    I didnt have one at one time

    I didnt really need one either but i bought one as it was cheaper on price

    for those that think its not worth it, its great for cutting sheet materials cuts faster than the using the grinder I should know ive done it

    was the cost of getting the air compressor worth it as well with the plasma

    well i think so get to use air compressor on the car as well as on the lathe for cleaning parts off so really a multi use tool

    I use mine when needed and it gets stored away

    you can cut box section with it but i prefer grinder for that job but on sheet metal the plasma rules with me was it worth me buying one well this post should tell you that one and im already considering getting it at this price even though i dont need it

    EvilBay has what look like the right consumables, e.g. 20 tips, 20 nozzles, 6 cups and 12 seals for £8, not exactly expensive - LCON40 / LG-40 / PT-31 seems to bring the right ones up.

    @Those in the know: what's the air consumption likely to be? I have a 2 or 3? HP twin-cylinder compressor, it has separate outlets I plumbed for oily (Euro) and clean (PCL), it'll be fed clean...

    I've always wanted one although no pressing need, just the odd occassion ;)

    Still, it might egg me on to getting my compressor stripped and rebuilt :rolleyes:

    I feel i do not have enough option for metal cutting
    Dry cut mitre
    Dry cut circsaw
    Bandsaw
    Lathe
    Mill

    All that i need is a plasma, i actually have a job in mind was going to out source to my plasma cutter but its so simple that i can make a ply template.

    You can never have enough options for metal cutting.

    I think I'm going to give this one a miss though. If it had been the same 40 A model that's being offered elsewhere I probably would have bought it, but I might wait until I can justify (or persuade the OH I can justify!) a CUT50 or CUT50P. I've kicked myself before for buying under-powered tools and then ended up upgrading after not much time.

    40/50 litre tank is ample enough to run plasma cutter at 4 bar 65/70 psi

    its better to have a 90 litre tank for longer cuts in time but a 40 is what i use and i use belt drive its quiter compared to direct drive

    the cut 50 will only go up to 12mm cut at severence cut i suspect this model goes to 6mm with 9mm severence cut but im not sure to be honest

    cut50 uses pt31 torch like this one does the extra part you dont get with the cut 50 is the wheeled tool like you get with this machine
