Update: The plasma cutter is f*****g cool.

Using shop air and electricity to make metal disappear is pretty freaking awesome.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

I've said this before...I'll say it again:

Thus far, just a bunch of 1/8" mild steel bars while I learn what I'm doing. I want to chop down my old 19" wheels into crucible-sized pieces, but I need to get the cutter running @ 220v first.

I have a date with an electrician tomorrow to pull some Romex and install a couple of breakers...

Alcohol and a gun...the creators of the Simpsons usually have it right.
