Hey Lanse, I too noticed the rubber boots. Like others have said that's an accident waiting to happen. I've had more than my share of hot balls get into my boots over the years and I can say with 110% certainty, it's NO FUN and IT HURTS LIKE HE!! least the rubber, slip ons would be quick and easy to get off easier than a pair of leather, lace up, work boots........

That said, I know different mfgs have different torch designs, and parts available, and it may not be available for yours, but have you looked into a drag tip for your plasma torch? This would allow you to keep the torch in contact with the material being cut, instead of trying to hold it steady above it, and give you a cleaner cut as a result. If there isn't a drag tip available they also make attachments that will serve the same purpose. I think the one we had for Dad's plasma came in the kit with the circle cutter, but I imagine they can ge purchased seperately, or home made, if you were so inclined. Another good thing about either the drap tip, or the attachment is that they will allow you to use another piece of metal, etc as a guide when cutting straight lines so you don't have to concentrate on keeping the torch height correct and doing it free hand.
