I have acquired an old Hypertherm Max100 plasma torch. I basically got it for free because they were not sure that the unit worked. When I powered it up everything seemed fine and when I tried to cut a piece of metal the arc was not very hot. In looking at the unit there must have been a loose connection in the quick connect for the cables going to the gun because it melted the plug that went into the quick connect. I would like to know if there is a way to cut off the quick connect plug on the cables that are going to my gun and install fittings that would connect directly to the power unit. I know I could probably buy some direct connect cables but I really donít want to spend that much money if I am not sure that the power unit is working. Thanks for any help that you can give me.
