Review: Boswell 40amp Inverter Plasma Cutter
Boswell 40amp plasma cutter: The introduction
Invented during World War 2 to provide a faster method of welding machines of mass destruction like air crafts, tanks, artillery tractors and armoured cars, to name a few. You can say that a plasma cutter is a handy dandy equipment that comes with a rich history. Fast forward to the 21st century and the mentioned metal cutting equipment has gone a myriad of changes, particularly on its operating parameters that include the current, gas type, voltage, and nozzle size, to name a few. In addition to all these, the plasma cutter has somewhat become mainstream and now, it can be purchased on the market. It should be noted though, that those out on Ewelders and other business entities are not created equal; others stand out, while others become irrelevant. A particular model that has trumped competition is the Boswell 40 amp plasma cutter.
Boswell 40amp plasma cutter: Key features
New and improved pilot arc start
The Boswell guys decided to throw away the old contact arc start and introduced a new and improved pilot arc that allows you to easily, accurately, and efficiently cut through different kinds of metal surfaces–even–painted and rusted ones. Take note that this is a little something that cannot be achieved with conventional arc technology. On top of the mentioned benefits, this particular improvement also allows you to make the most of your prized investment because you can enjoy the consumable life of the torch for many years to come.
Professional, compact, and affordable
The Boswell 40amp plasma comes with a rugged new design that is characterised by its eye-catching ABS plastic case. Plus, its smaller dimension offers something that you wouldn’t expect from something this compact. All these are achieved without compromising power and quality since it can cut through 16mm thick steel. Who would have thought that something that is less than 9 kilograms (8.2 kilograms) can perform this well? Indeed, some of the best things in life come in small packages.
Appropriate post flow time
The Boswell 40 amp comes with appropriate post flow time (2.5 or 5s) that can be easily adjusted to suit a particular need. As unimportant as it may seem, it should be noted that this is essential because too much amperage may disfigure the metal and leave a sloppy look or cut. Also, having appropriate flow time prevents oxidation and cracking of the metal material, which means that the quality of finished products are well taken care of.
Heavy duty and cheap
They say that quality comes at steep price. Well, this is not applicable to the Boswell 40 amp since it comes with a durable ABS plastic case and components that are designed to withstand the test of time and constant use. The best part? All these come at an affordable price, which means that you can achieve all these and more without burning a hole in your pocket.

Boswell 40amp plasma cutter: The verdict
The Boswell 40amp may not be a cut above the rest, but it boasts of practical functions that you, the operator will certainly love and find beneficial. With this compact metal cutting equipment, you can obtain a handy dandy tool that you can use on your hobby, welding project, or business. On the other hand, bear in mind that it’s not that user-friendly, which is a bit of a turn-off, if I may add and using it may require a bit of practice. But all in all, it’s a good investment that can deliver tonnes of gains!
