    Mine is the older cut40 model. It has the LT50 torch. Consumables on Amazon for the CB50/LT50 are cheap and cheerful (cheaper than IFL, anyway!) and it severs 12mm mild steel at a push. It's comfortable up to 8mm and works great on 6mm. Was very impressed with it the other day - used on 8mm aluminium checquer plate, slow and steady, made 4m of perfectly acceptable cut.
    I also ditched the standard size nozzles and only using the extended length ones, they're a better all rounder IMO and you can use a bit of flat bar as a cutting guide.
    The only thing I hate about it is the electrodes aren't threaded - they are push fit, and when they're used, they expand in the torch and each time I think I'm going to break the torch to wrench them out with pliers.

    Obviously a newer machine with pilot arc will perform better, but its not a bad machine in its own right :)

    @Monkx I'm looking for £200 all in including postage to anywhere on mainland UK. I will put the full advert on the For Sale Forum to ensure I don't fall foul of any forum rules.
