Plasma cutting has now been changed forever thanks to the launch of the new range of CutSkill Manual Plasma Cutters, including our CutSkill 45!

Incorporating the latest in plasma cutting technology, the CutSkill 45 & 35 Plasma Cutters are easily controlled with a single operating knob.

Decide if you want your torch set to manual or latch mode, whether you’re cutting flat plate or grid plate, adjust your current and you’re ready to cut! All actions are clearly displayed on the 2.8″ colour LCD screen. 

Coming standard with the new CutSkill 60A Plasma Torch, the CutSkill 45 clean cuts up to 16mm mild steel and up to 12mm stainless steel – all whilst running off a 15amp plug!

For ease of use, the regulator is internal and air through the torch is managed automatically by the plasma unit. This removes the need to adjust air pressure for individual cutting requirements.

    Ive owned the two big brands in Plasma Cutting befor puchasing this machine. In my view unit is outstanding:
    a) very clean cuts
    b) will cut more than it’s rated to
    c) dead easy to use
    d) automatic air pressure regulation
    e) very efficient on power
    f) the price is more than competitive

    Minor detractors are:
    a) air post flow is hard set at 60 seconds
    b) torch does feel a little cheap when compared with the high end torches
    c) minor finish issues on the build of the power supply
    However these are MINOR issues in my experience. Just make sure you have a compressor that is at least 12 CFM, and a second water seperator/filter arrangement.

    I purchased this unit behind the back of my usual welding shop because they were under the impression that a single phase plasma wouldn’t be capable of clean 10mm cuts yet alone the 16mm stated in the manual.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the unit after unboxing. It is compact, solid and the user manual was well written. My only complaint is that it could come with more consumables but these are relatively inexpensive.

    I dragged out a sheet of 16mm mild steel plate and did some freehand cuts. The user controls were easy to understand and the cut quality was impressive. I made several cuts across the width of the 850mm sheet and there was no issues with overheating.

    The included shield cup spacer/guide is exactly 10mm from the finish cut. So it’s an easy number to remember when clamping a straight edge down. The torch feel good in the hand and the angle of the tip is easy to maintain.

    I set the torch up on a track cutter and made some 1.4m cuts through some more 16mm plate. The finish was unreal and only needed a quick file to remove the dross. I have yet to find the point at which the duty cycle stops me from cutting. I’m sure repeating long cuts in thick plate will be an issue but for what I do it’s perfect.

    Overall this is a fantastic plasma cutter for the price and I expect to get many years of reliable service.

    This product based on it’s price and performance capability was the best I could find in the market. The Cigweld Cutskill brand gave me the confidence and reassurance that this product would be a great performer and provide excellent future service.

    I have not used it yet but seems like a good quality product with a good warranty and good priced consumables. Being a cig weld it should be no fuss getting parts or a warranty issue sorted out.

    I chose this brand over other similar machines due to the established name of CigWeld in Australia. I believe they will stand behind their products and uphold their warranty.

    The weldskill 45 I think was very reasonably priced and had an impressive duty cycle for its class, Overall i’m very happy with the unit thus far, I’m also pleased CIG back it with a 3 year warranty.
