Looks like a handy gadget. Thought she might cut into the table. What's the advantage of a plasma cutter over a cutting torch? Cutting a plate like she practiced on I've used a hand grinder with abrasive wheel to make a groove, then break it over an edge.

A plasma torch will rid of your money a lot faster. Plasma torches are good for any type of metal and excellent for sheet metal. For just general steel cutting around the farm or hobby shop, they are a lot of money. On 3/16" and thicker steel I prefer a standard cutting torch over a plasma torch. Plasma torches go through a lot more consumables than a cutting torch and you need to use an air compressor with them. If you get moisture in your air will really go through consumables.

They use electricity and compressed air as opposed to bottled gas and oxygen.Instant ignition and extiguishing, Heated area is just at the point of the cut so surrounding material stays relativly cool reducing warpage. A very slick tool! Made the mistake of using a plasma AND an auto darkening hood on a job. Never could go back to the old ways! They are both a couple of quantum advances in metal working!
