At least the HF ones are the newer blowback start, without Hi-Freq.
Also, they have the torch with the nice single connector, so it's easy to remove it when done, and put it out of the way.

Great idea Midmo! Reminder set! (although if it dies before then chances are I won't want to relive this shame)...

No free sample of Covid, but they did send a package of dehydrated bat soup - just add water!

Please keep us in the loop about the operation, good or bad.
I appreciate that Jack - all joking aside I'll keep you guys in the loop as to how it goes. I'll be posting a project over the next month with a little work on it. I'll be sure to include some photos of the cut quality.

I'm 50/50

Bought a cut60 on ebay for 200 rated to 10mm sever, was only fit for around 3mm. Sold it for 120 to a friend who only wanted to do bodywork.


Bought one in lidl recently for 120, rated to 10mm, this thing is savage. Will sever 15mm!!!!! And has a 3 year warranty
