    Dave does the torch come with a drag tip or cutting tip?
    If the tip is not meant to be dragged making a drag spacer around the collar will clean the cut up.
    Then again I知 sure they have just re-engineered a Hypertherm and stolen their drag tip tech
    A 30A unit is pretty much always a hand torch?

    Alan, the other thing to preserve tip life is to limit piercing when possible and to use good consistent clean dry air. Wet air will eat tips quickly.

    I keep an old tip for down n dirty cuts or when I知 gouging welds out
    That痴 one of my favourite plasma tricks using it as an un-welder

    Drsg, I scuff it to start and then follow along with my hand resting on a bit of 50mm box as a guide and just keep the tip clear.

    I also use a set of oxy wheels when I need to get really neat.

    you could... but then...

    I know a guy who also needs to redo the tip on his plasma..... He'd probably be happy to show you through some steel.
