Dang fun... isn't it? I do the same trying to gauge my speed by looking at the tail and not focusing on a constant speed drag. I might look into investing in a tool to better roll along with so the tip doesn't get hung up and jerky. It has be a dream cutting with my 45xp.
gotta love plasma!I love my plasma cutter, even if it's the Harbor Freight version... I cut through some random scrap yard steel making a bracket like butter then tried drilling a couple holes through it and realized it was something hard after I burned up the first bit then tried another with similar success...
If possible I use a guide and just watch the back side to see if it is going out at just a slight angle. For a guide I have been using the Harbor Freight magnet bars spaced away appropriately (10mm in my case) for straight cuts, it makes things look very nice...
