Last night we got to use the plasma cutter in my welding class. It’s so cool! I was the only one really interested in using it so I played with it for about 1 1/2 hours and told the guys they’d just have to kick me off if they wanted to use it. I toyed around with writing my name, making straight cuts and cutting different materials. I discovered that cutting through aluminum creates a nice finish, but is really messy. Joe, the instructor, gave me some 1/4″ steel to cut and I made a plaque with my house numbers. Now, I realize this isn’t great art, but for just 1 1/2 hours of practice, this isn’t too bad. Joe seemed impressed. This is cutting through 1/4″ steel – wicked!
Since it’s cold outside, I wanted to share photos of what the cats do all day. Yep, they’re spoiled rotten.
