I see that it says it can cut 1/2 inch steel but im wondering how thick of steel it will pierce?
It was ruff but I pierced 3/4. Several times. A wiggle pierce is the best practice
Thank you I just wanted to make sure it would pierce 1/2 inch because most plates I will be making are 1/2 or under
There should be no issues… The only thing to keep you eye on is duty cycle
If necessary, you could drill a pilot hole near the lead-in point to help the piercing but that would be a pain unless you had a magnetic drill.
I’ve cut a fair amount of 1/2”, one second pierce delay and have had no issues.
