    I have the 80 amp cutter and was just curious as to what everyone else is getting the best results on there machines
    I am running the 4800 machine and cut all types of materials
    from 22g all the way to 1/2 inch

    I cut some 20g yesterday at 250ipm and 30v. Using pm125 with 45a shielded consumables.

    I've been cutting 14g at 148ipm and 42v (same setup) but the dross is excessive IMO. Need to fine tune a little.

    With FC80 and 40amp consumables with 40 amps set on the machine

    14ga 210ipms
    11ga 106ipms
    3/16 53ipm

    I will be posting another set like this for the FC125 along with different amperage.

    I'm not a production cutter so all Chad cares about is clean and little to no clean up.

    Cutting at 40 amps with the Flexcut 80 these settings produce cuts with very little bevel and minimal dross.

    18ga 350ipm
    16ga 300ipm
    14ga 210ipm
    12ga 140ipm
    10ga 92ipm

    At 60 amps these settings work well:

    3/16" 90ipm
    1/4" 70ipm
    3/8" 33ipm
