Now then....

I’m not expecting the quality of laser or water jet cutting, but how easy is it to make passable cuts and with what sort of dexterity? For example, curved holes..

I have a plasma cutter, surprisingly good. TD99 suggested making a wooden template as a guide to run the torch and then its even better :)

Tbh most fun is chopping stuff up though :mrgreen: :lol:
