    Looks like it should work. Really no stress on the arms. Aluminum skateboard would need a stout plasma cutter. I have a 25amp Miller and it can get through 0.250" aluminum, but it ain't pretty.

    I thought you were never supposed to plasma cut aluminum over water?

    I can see it being $1k, not much too it really. I wouldn't build an airplane with it but would be cool to have it to mess around with.

    Looking into it further, they give you the cut files for all those projects and people offer up many more.

    Looks interesting for someone with a limited budget (like me).
    Wonder if they will post up "How To" videos.

    (I'd be interested in a tut explaining how that woman was cutting a board in the center while being supported by saw horses on both ends.)

    $1k doesn't include the plasma. I built one with all of the options and it came to like $2100. Still not bad. The better plasma cutter I chose said it could do 1/2" material!

    We cut 1/2" steel quite often and 063 aluminum regularly. On aluminum, we make sure to have the table extra full and wear respirators made for welding.
