The exclusive Eastwood engineered Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter, a portable, affordable and easy-to-use DIY power tool, was launched recently by The Eastwood Company, innovators of automotive restoration tools.
The Eastwood Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter allows easy, clean cuts through steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. This Plasma Cutter features voltage-sensing technology, which allows the hobbyist to plug into either a 110V or 220V outlet with the included adaptor cord, while using a minimum 15-amp circuit at 50/60 hertz. The unit incorporates an internal moisture separator to ensure dry air is delivered to the torch. The torch hose measures 20 feet, while the ground clamp measures 10 feet.
The cutting abilities on this unit are endless,” assured Mark Robidoux, creator of the Eastwood Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter and one of Eastwood’s top restoration experts. “The at-home fabricator can make clean, fast cuts in metals as thin as 24 gauges and up to 3/8-inch–thick material. The inverter technology offers superior arc stability and cutting power. The innovative Eastwood Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter uses any standard home- or shop-type air compressor within a range of 20-65 psi, at 3 cfm, depending on the metal thickness.
