Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter Operating Instructions + Tips

Eastwood Versa Cut Plasma Cutter Set up InstructionsOur Eastwood-designed Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter is your smartest choice for making clean, fast cuts through steel, stainless or aluminum as thin as 24-gauge, or as thick as 3/8”. Compared to mechanical cutting, our Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter works significantly faster, and makes curved and intricate cuts more easily and precisely. Inverter technology offers superior arc stability and cutting power using either 110 or 220 volts, making this a portable unit that is also light weight. A built in pilot arc system allows for instant arc striking and ease of use when cutting rusty material and expanded metal. The internal moisture separator helps to ensure clean dry air gets to the torch to give you consistent results.

DUTY CYCLE

The rated Duty cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter has a duty cycle of 60% at 40 Amps. It is easiest to look at your cutting time in blocks of 10 Minutes and the Duty Cycle being a percentage of that 10 Minutes. If cutting at 40 Amps with a 60% Duty Cycle, within a 10 Minute block of time you can cut for 6 Minutes with 4 Minutes of cooling for the cutter. To increase the duty cycle you can turn down the Amperage Output control.

DANGER WARNINGS!

READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND PRECAUTIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING

This unit emits a powerful high voltage and extremely high temperature plasma arc of superheated air which can cause severe burns, dismemberment, electrical shock and death. Eastwood shall not be held liable for consequences due to deliberate or unintentional misuse of this product.

SAFETY INFORMATION

DANGER! FLAMMABILITY HAZARD

Before beginning, make sure the work surface is cleaned of any oils, coatings or other materials which can ignite and or emit dangerous fumes or vapors.

Molten metal is ejected away from the cutting area with significant force and speed. Make sure the entire work area is clear from flammable or easily damaged materials or objects.

DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE DANGER

The unit contains no user serviceable parts! Contact with the torch when the button is depressed will result in a serious shock and severe burns!

This device also produces High-Frequency, Radio-Frequency Emissions which can damage sensitive electronic equipment in the area. Keep all cell-phones, cameras, watches and other electronic equipment at least 6 feet away from the Power Unit and Torch.

Important Note: If you have a medical condition or pacemaker check with your doctor before using as the RF emissions may cause interference

ELECTRICAL SAFETY TIPS

DANGER!

Electrical Safety Do’s

Make sure you, your work area, and your equipment are dry.

If you are using an extension cord (not recommended), make sure it is a grounded cord in sound condition with no damage or frays, and of the correct wire gauge (minimum 12 Gauge @ 25’ maximum length)

Ensure that proper sized circuit breakers and wiring are in place prior to use: 20 Amp for 120 volt operation and 30 Amp for 240 volt operation.

DANGER!

Electrical Safety Dont’s

Never bypass the ground plug. Grounding is necessary for proper operation of the unit and reduces shock hazard.

Do not touch the torch tip until after the activation switch is off and the unit is UNPLUGGED.

Do not use the unit if any component should become damaged or show signs of excessive wear.

REQUIRED ITEMS

Before you begin using the Eastwood Versa Cut Plasma Cutter make sure you have the following:

A clean, dry air supply source for the torch. An air compressor capable of delivering 5-7 CFM @ 60 PSI is required. You can even use a portable air tank with regulator. The air supply must be dry and the use of a moisture trap is strongly recommended.

Eastwood recommends at a minimum a properly grounded 110-120 VAC 50/60Hz., 20 Amp circuit or 220-240 VAC 50/60Hz., 30 Amp circuit. NOTE: Unit must be grounded to work properly and safely!

A clean, safe, well-lit, dry, and well-ventilated work area

A non-flammable, long sleeve shirt or jacket

Heavy Duty Welding Gloves (Eastwood #12590 or equivalent)

Auto Darkening Welding Mask (Eastwood #13203 or glasses Eastwood #13948) to provide eye protection during cutting operations

POWER REQUIREMENTS

The Eastwood Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter is voltage sensing; it will automatically operate on 110-120 VAC, 50/60Hz., or 220-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. Our Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter is supplied with the popular NEMA 50P plug, requiring a NEMA-50R recepticle. If a 220-240 VAC, 30 Amp outlet is used a UL listed 30 Amp plug may be installed by a licensed and qualified electrician.

BEFORE YOU CAN BEGIN

Remove all items from the box. Compare with list below to make sure unit is complete.

Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter
Torch and 20’ Supply Line
1′ NEMA 50 240 Volt to 120 Volt grounded adapter cord
10′ Ground Lead and clamp
Instruction Booklet
Face Shield
Extra Electrode and Nozzle

SET UP

Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter Set upAfter the desired current source is determined, be sure the proper plug is used and the appropriate circuitry and breakers are in place.

Do not plug unit in at this time and make sure the Power Switch on the left side of The Front Panel is in the OFF position. (Fig. A)

Install an air fitting compatible with your air line into the 1/4” NPT fitting on the rear of the plasma cutter. (Fig. B)

Attach the Torch Air Supply Line to the lower left of the front panel and tighten. (Fig. C)

Attach the Torch Switch Connector Cable to the Multi-Pin Connector located on the third from left of the lower front panel. (Fig. C)

Remove the black threaded knob (2nd from left) and place the terminal of the red lead over the post, then replace the knob and tighten. (Fig. C)

Attach the Ground Lead Connector to the terminal located at the lower right of the front panel. (Fig. C)

OPERATION

Versa cut 40 plasma cutter operation1. Before attempting to use this unit on an actual project or object of value, practice on a similar material as there is a moderate learning curve necessary before achieving proficiency in cutting.

2.Place the Ground Cable Clamp on a clean, bare area of your workpiece. Scrape, wire brush, file or grind a bare area if necessary to achieve a good ground.

3. Set the Air Pressure to the appropriate pressure with the Knob located at the upper right side of the front panel. (Fig. C) The Pressure Indicating Gauge is located directly above the Air Pressure Knob and is generally set at 30 to 60 PSI. The actual pressure required is dictated by the thickness of the metal being cut; lower pressure for thinner metals, higher pressure for thicker or harder metals.

4. Set the Output Amperage Knob (Fig. C) located at the center of the upper panel to an appropriate setting again based
on the thickness of the metal being cut; lower amperage for thinner metals, higher amperage for thicker metals. Keep in mind that “more is not always better” as too high of an amperage setting will result in overheating of the unit and excessive molten discharge from the cut.

5. Make sure all your safety gear is in place (Self-Darkening Welding Mask, Welding Gloves, non-flammable long sleeve apparel) and the area is completely free of flammable material.

6. The best results are achieved by holding the tip at a 90° angle to the cut line. (Fig. D)

7. To begin cutting, depress the Torch Trigger to ignite the pilot arc. The tip of the torch must be touching or within a short distance to the work piece to begin the cut.

8. With practice, you will be able to exercise precise control over this extremely powerful device, harnessing its energy to create clean, precise and intricate cuts in many forms of steel and iron up to 3/8” thick.

9. While you practice, experiment with different speeds. You will find that thinner materials will allow a faster motion while thicker materials will require a slower motion to achieve a through cut.

10. A good form of practice is to attempt a series of straight lines while creating the cleanest edge possible with a minimum of molten material remaining on the cut edge. This minimizes the cleanup of the edge with a grinder or file. Another excellent technique is to practice cutting your initials out of a piece of steel.

DANGER

Danger: Plasma Arc consists of superheated, electrified air which will quickly and violently vaporize almost anything in its path.

Plasma Cutter 40 Amp Eastwood Care and Maintenance TorchCARE AND MAINTENANCE

It is extremely important that the air supply be clean and dry. A separate moisture trap, water/oil separator or desiccant system should be used. The Versa-Cut Plasma Cutter has a built-in “last-chance” moisture separator which requires draining each time you have completed work with the unit. This feature is located on the underside rear corner and is drained by keeping the unit level and gently pulling down on the drain fitting. (Fig. E)

•Constantly inspect the torch tip for excessive erosion, molten metal accumulation or burning. If damaged, it must be replaced.

•Before each use, inspect ALL electrical connections, cables, supply line, torch, air supply, housing and controls for damage. If any damage or wear is noted, DO NOT USE THE UNIT.

• Always store the unit in a safe, clean and dry environment

TORCH MAINTENANCE

The Eastwood Versa Cut Plasma Cutter has a number of consumable parts that will need to be replaced over time. If
wear or slag build up is noticed on any of the torch components, replace them immediately to avoid damage to the torch. Worn components will also contribute to poor cutting and difficult arc starting. See the torch components (Fig. F) exploded view for a reference of all of the components and the assembly order.

TROUBLESHOOTING

• The entire unit shuts off during use, switch is in the “on” position:

-The unit has overheated from exceeding the duty cycle and the internal thermal protection circuitry has been activated. Turn the main power switch off, wait several minutes to allow cooling then turn power switch back on. The unit is ready for service.
-The power switch is on, the indicator light is illuminated, the fan is running however when the Torch activation button is depressed, there is no sound from the Pilot Arc Igniter and there is no air flow:

-Check all connections. A loose connection will prevent Torch activation.
-Check for damaged lines, Torch or Torch Tip.
-Make sure there is sufficient air flow & pressure. (30 to 60 PSI)

• The power switch is on, the indicator light is illuminated, the fan is running however when the Torch activation button is depressed, there is airflow through the torch but no sound from the Pilot Arc Igniter:

-Check all connections. A loose connection will prevent Torch activation.
-Check for damaged lines, Torch or Torch Tip.
-Inspect the Torch Tip for damage, excessive molten material build-up or excessive burning. Replace if necessary.

• The power switch is on, the indicator light is illuminated, the fan is running and when the Torch activation button is depressed, there is airflow through the torch, the Pilot Arc Igniter is activating however a plasma arc cannot be started:

-Check all connections. A loose connection will prevent Torch activation.
-Check for damaged lines, Torch or Torch Tip.
-Inspect the Torch Tip for damage, excessive molten material build-up or excessive burning. Replace if necessary.
-Input voltage is too low or too high (below 110V or above 240V).
-Air pressure is too low or too high. (below 30 PSI or above 60 PSI), Adjust to proper pressure.

•The Pilot Arc is spattering:

-Lower air pressure to 60 PSI or below.
-Replace the nozzle and electrode in the torch.

Mig Welders: Comparing Eastwood vs. Lincoln

“What we’re going to do today is talk about Mig Welders, and in particular, our MIG135. Now recently we’ve had some inquiries about other units looking identical to ours, and they may. There’s other units out there that look alike with the face, your different adjustment knobs, the switch. But we can’t guarantee the performance or the weld quality of those units, but what we can do is we can guarantee the performance of our unit equivalent to the industry leader. This here happens to be the Lincoln MigPack 10. This is one of the most popular 110v Mig Welders on the market.

“What I want to do is show you some of the differences and some of the similarities between these two units. The Eastwood welder has infinitely adjustable wire speed. It lets you tailor the speed to the material and the voltage output- same with the Lincoln unit.

“The Lincoln unit, however, for the heat settings has just a 4 position switch here, while what we have on our unit is infinitely adjustable heat position and voltage. What this does is it allows you to dial it down for that thin sheet metal to patch panels and then also bring it back up to cover any thicker materials in your carbons and your stainless steels.

“So what we’re going to do now is show you these machines welding identical materials at identical settings and let you guys see for yourself the weld bead quality, the penetration, smooth wire feed and ease of use.

“What we’ve got here is some 1018 3/16 gauge steel. We’re going to do lap welds on both of the units. First one we’re going to do is the Lincoln Mig Pack 10. This is the torch cabling coming right out of the unit. And then right after that we’re going to stop and pick up the Eastwood Mig135, go ahead and run the same 1 1/2″, maybe 2″ long bead.

[demonstration]

“As you can see, pretty much equivalent between the Lincoln and the Eastwood, both in weld bead quality and also in penetration of the substrates.”

We thank you for sharing these photos.

So without further adieu…

Thanks to Jim M., of Windsor, Virginia for this review of the PRO motorcycle lift table!

“Hi Clark,

I received the Pro 1200 motorcycle lift today. Wow, I am super-impressed — this lift exceeded my expectations. I used to work in a motorcycle shop, and this is just as solid — if not better — than the lifts we had there.

I called a buddy over to see it. He has another brand (I won’t mention the name) which is not made as well as this one. He’s mad at me for showing it to him, because now he hates his lift more than he already did!

Another friend of mine had one of the “foot pump” lifts, but his hydraulic pump broke in less than a year and he can’t find replacement parts for it. I told him never to buy that one, anyway.

Thank you very much for everything. Your customer service is as top-notch as your product!

Jim”

Do you offer tire and wheel service at your shop?

Phoenix Wheel Balancer shown at Ballistic Motor Sports

Phoenix Wheel Balancer at Ballistic Motorsports in Bow, NH

It is necessary to provide tire and wheel service even though it may not be the most common service you provide.

Where do you draw the line with how much money you spend on tire and wheel service equipment? As equipment providers, it is important for us to sell high-end production equipment, but in many cases it is also necessary to provide low cost quality equipment for those who do low to mid level tire and wheel service.

Whether it be an F350 wheel you need to service or a medium to small vehicle, like a Honda a Civic, Phoenix Auto Equipment machines are capable of doing both for a fraction of the price.

Just like all the major wheel service equipment manufacturers have realized the need to manufacture less expensive machines for those who provide the tire and wheel service, but it isn’t their main market, we have also recognized that there is a range of needs for garages and auto body shops.
