I just bought the plasma cutter from Eastwood. We used it last weekend to cut off the u-bolts on the axles. Worked great, once you get the hang of it. I only have 110V in my garage and I had to play with the amp dial a bit to get to not blowing the fuse on my garage circuit. Once that was set, the plasma cutter worked really well and made short work of the u-bolts. Get a good auto darkening helmet and have at it. I put down a painters tarp under the axle to catch the mess from the cutting metal. Sparks all over.
Next up are the front spring shackles since those pins aren't even close to moving. Glad I have it. Wish I had 220V in the garage to use with it, as that would be even better/faster. The Eastwood is 110/220V capable. And, like some other tools - it's only going to get used once in a while, but when you need it - it's the bomb.
