Anyone get one of these?

By Thursday evening all the branches around here which stocked it (only about 1/3rd of stores) had sold out.

Most now seem to be on Ebay at about double the price.

I got one!!! :D :D (A plasma cutter that is) They've been waiting years for these on mig-welding forum
I've had a little blast to just check it works but it seems very easy and effective. Compared to my Clarke it seems a lot less fiddly to set up and cut. It's also much lighter and smaller.
They had prosecco at £4.99

Ah. Found it on their web-site. £79.99. Sounds quite cheap to me. I'm sure we paid a lot more for ours and that was a pretty cheap one.

Very cheap, but that's no excuse to try and make a quick £80+ reselling. They are as bad as ticket touts!

I hope they don't sell, and they are left with a plasma cutter they don't need!


On the listings where it has a "best offer" accepted I've been offering amounts to make the price inc shipping £79.99. I don't expect to get any takers, but if it wee them off my work is done.
