I have been meaning to post some news about my Plasma Cam Pipe Cutter for a while now. So after pilfering the knowledge on this forum for sometime, I finally registered.
I have had the Plasmacam Pipe Cutter for about three months now and have made some amazing stuff so far. A lot of the guys get the Pipe Cutter for notching pipe and other more industrial applications. However, I wanted to use it in more of an artistic application. My favorite project for the pipe cutter came after talking to one of the sales people at PlasmaCam, he gave me a brilliant idea! Literally! So I made my first outdoor light with a 6" diameter sch 40 pipe with my home address number on it. I rigged it on a timer to light up at night and it sits at the entrance of the driveway. I thought about painting it, but I kind of enjoy the natural rustic look that it has.
I had about 15 random people and neighbors stop by my house last week ask me where I got it. Originally, I intended to keep my machine strictly for my personal 'tinkering around'. I have a full time job, so my intention was not to make it my job. But now that the cat is out of the bag and with all of the attention this stuff is getting, my wife has been pestering me about making some of this stuff for people the side. My wife stays at home, so I told her fine...but you going to be making the stuff on the plasmacam while I am at work! She was scared at first... but now I have her making all sorts of stuff while I am at work!
The main reason why I got this machine was that it is easy to use. So here you go, this is a classic example. I can even trust my wife with it!
