The best thing would be to invest in a good torch when you’ve used all the consumables. I bought a stamos 50a a few years back, would cut 12mm ok. Spent £80 on a new better torch and now it cuts 12mm like a production cut instead of severance cut. Can’t beat Aldi or Lidl for their machinery...
Silicone is the next stage in high output batteries, technology changing all the time. All these minerals have to be mined in some way or another, they certainly aren’t using battery power to mine it so it’s very extraction is creating huge amounts of co2. Still, the in-laws supply glencore with...
