Re: cutting tools? plasma cutter or cutting torch?

I have never used a plasma cutter, just a little out of my price league. But I have seen the work they do, very clean and neat. A torch is significantly less expensive and is probably more versatile. Don't know for sure however. I do know they are less expensive. $300 will get you tank rental and a good torch outfit that will cut any material you will encounter on your jeep. For the same capabilities in a plasma cutter, expect to pay upwards of a $1000 and need good electrical. I would start with the torch, you will/can use it for other things besides cutting, and the plasma torch can come later.
