My razor weld plasma ended up being junk. They replaced it twice in 6 months. I told them they could keep or after the last time. I stepped up and bought a thermal dynamics cut master 42. Should be better!

I think you made the right choice too.
With all the work you do, the inexpensive models were not designed to be used that much.
There's a big difference between the hobby shop and a production shop.

The only change I've made on mine was changing the hand piece. Wasn't expensive at all and fit the same hose. But I changed it to facilitate buying consumables easier. The extras I originally got for the DR unit, while they said they fit my machine, they weren't really a good fit and I believe they ate themselves up quicker because of that. So I changed the hand piece to one that consumables are easier to get and much cheaper in quantity and fit well.

I bought 2 different hand pieces and more consumables. The consumables I got fit both of the new hand pieces. I liked the Esab hand pc better so that's what I kept on the cutter. And I still have the other new one.
