Mig/arc to plasma conversion?


Recommended Posts

As a student project we are building a lathe from scrap parts, using an old 4 cylinder engine block and crankshaft. In the same spirit of "we did it just because it seemed like a good idea at the time" has anyone tried converting a trasformer-welder to work as a plasma cutter? One should imagine the principle is simple, but the fettling required considerable. I also have little wish to be informing parents their little darlings have gone up in a blue flash so any do's and don'ts would be well received....
