I got my tax return today. So as promised (to myself) I ordered the LP50D today. It comes with the 60 amp torch up grade. Is the 60 amp torch better then the 50 amp torch? I assume yes but how?

The 60amp torch has better consumables on it that will last longer. You can also ground that torch out as a member of this forum (Gadget) has done. It is a more industrial grade torch.

No problem. We moved it to the right place. At first we thought you had a news announcement with your recent purchase. :D

Anyway, let us know how you like the longevity plasma cutter.

Thanks for the move.

You will like the 60amp upgrade. The consumables last quite a bit longer. Also, if you were to use this in a machine controlled environment you can run a ground wire to the outside of the tip and have a non contact start. I wouldn't do it for freehand work though, imagine the damage if you accidentally bumped the trigger with an important body part (aren't they all important) in the path of the torch.
