Default Plasma question

Question, my plasma torch is a 60 series, is that an international standard for things like the ceramic shroud?

Wouldn't have a clue, chinese I suspect, just that I broke the lastceramic shroud this morning and they were expensive rom the dealer and a lot less on ebay so I took a chance on them being compatible.

I have a Plasma 60, as advertised, here. I think these machines are rated according to the output amperage. While the claim for the 60 is to be able to cut 7/8" thickness, it will easily go through 1".

Very similar looking torch and that's the guy I ordered from, I got my plasma from Tokentools in NSW. They should be here around Monday so I'll soon find out.

I have never used my machine for anything other than 1/16" ! The book says it will cut 16mm which is 5/8 but I'd use oxy acetylene for anything bigger than 1/4

why use a field dressing knife for surgery when you have a scalpel on hand?

I have over 50 years with oxy acetylene cutting and have heard from others it does a better job on heavier steel although I have not tried it. Plus when I was on site you could always drag the hoses up several levels, not aware of that with plasma. I have O/A tips that I've had since the 60's, just the occasional clean with tip cleaners and they are good to go. Different horses for different courses.
