    The only difference that I know of is the manual handle is angled, and the machine torch is straight. The real difference for cut quality in is the different available consumables and nozzle assembly.

    Plus because of the higher duty cycle of cnc cutting, often the machine torch might be rated for higher current. eg. 70 amps vs 50 amps

    But if you have an old machine with an old,torch which may be obsolete technology, you may not have such a simple upgrade path as changing a torch... Today's technology is better...
