This is a multi process machine Tig, Stick and Plasma. The plasma torch is controlled through a 7 pin Panasonic plug with leads on pins 1 and 2. I called everlast and had a spare plug mailed to me for $12. So far I cut the architectural plate with the basic settings indicated in the tutorial. I used 120 wall steel (11 gauge), the tutorial uses 14 gauge. At the 40 amp setting the ipm was too fast and did not fully cut through. On second try, I reduced ipm to 80% which would be 240, It cut the plate perfectly very minimal dross.
