How to Use a Plasma Cutter in Building Kitchen Steel Table

Plasma cutter is a useful tool for automotive work and metal cutting. You can perform plasma cutting on any conductive material. There are several plasma cutters available in the market today which are affordable to workers. To get cleaner cuts, most plasma cutters depend on Oxyfuel.

Metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, and cast iron are quite receptive to almost all welding methods. Thinner the metals, faster and cleaner the cuts would be. Without a plasma cutter, workers will find difficulties while cutting steel or aluminum.

Build a Steel Table using a cutter

Some tasks are simple while some concentrate on accuracy and craftsmanship. This Kitchen Steel table seems to adopt a principle of “going big or going home,” and we must admit that the finished product impresses us greatly.

Let us take you through the procedure

To achieve cleaner cuts with a plasma cutter, a sufficient supply of fresh and dry air is required. Fresh and dry air greatly improves the quality of the cut. A plasma cutter is a device that uses an inert gas from an activated nozzle which is blasted out at a high velocity. As this gas flows, an arc is added to it which allows you to easily cut through the steel.

Note that while building the steel table, enough precautions should be taken for your eye’s safety. A lot of heat is generated by plasma so use such a frame where the lens that will automatically adjust to shield your eyes. A fire-resistant suit along with safety gloves should also be used which covers the clothing and body together. It will take a lot of patience and composure to build a steel table.

Use an angle grinder to clean the edges. Longer bits measuring 1/5″ X 1.5″ X ¼” are cut with an iron edge measuring 24″. A few other cinches and a square with a right-edge is arranged to fill the crate and welded together. Once everything is put together the last welds of 1″ is done. Take either a sanding plate or a flapper over the table. Take the defensive covering off and uncover the metal. This enables you to transfer the power to the piece laid at the table.

Then, arrange the parts to represent the perimeter of the box with clamps and weld them together. Once it had all been put together, set the final welds as straight and square.

Welding thin steel plate to the bottom of your plasma cutting table may also be considered. This could just turn it upside down to shake off the slag.

Use this table to make cuts with your plasma cutter and don’t feel anxious about the steel table’s backside. The strong table helps you to place even steel plates, make your cutting and do not worry concerning parts hitting the floor.

The Final Result

To conclude, the table works pretty well on top of the concrete floor and provides ample capacity to use.
