    That's odd! I searched ebay for items and sellers, then followed a link from google to their ebay shop - but it was empty.
    Anyway that makes life easier - though 10-15% more expensive than buying direct.

    EDIT - Stupid ebay again. The IOW gets bundled with "Offshore Islands" so if the seller does not ship "offshore" there then ebay pretends they have an empty shop, no items listed and does not turn it up in a search either.

    Yep, still operating on eBay and I'm in the process of buying one. Just waiting for it to be delivered but so far the communication has been very good. I managed to screw up my PayPal payment so they helped to cancel and then rearrange the purchase so all should be well. Of course, most companies are great when it comes to taking your money but perhaps might not be so helpful when things break down but so far so good!
    Anyone got any recommendations as to the best consumables to use? Is it worth just sticking with the Stahlwerk offering or are there better ones out there?

    The fumes created when cutting stainless steel with a plasma cutter are extremely bad for your health and you really don't want to be breathing them in. Galvanized steel also creates really harmful fumes.
    It should cut 5mm stainless no problem I've cut 10mm stainless, it wasn't a clean cut but it did cut through in one pass no problem and didn't need much cleanup.

    I’m very tempted. I sold my hypertherm when I ceased fabrication work but I’m missing the convenience of it but can’t justify £3000+ for another one just for occasional work.
    My bottle rental came out this month at nearly £400 for a oa set from those dear people at boc so £275 if it lasts a few years is cheap

    Had to cut some 15mm mild steel with the plasma today, it handled it no problem whatsoever. The cut speed was fairly slow but I reckon she'd cut 20mm no problem. This cut was done free hand following a chalk line. Seriously impressed.

    The cut isn't perfectly square, it is tapered but not bad at all, more that good enough for what I needed.
