Job 3 – Plasma Cutter – Attempted

Customer brought in a plasma cutter that had popped when first powered on then did not power on after that.

I fixed the obviously-damaged arc drive lug, but the device still didn’t power on. It was not worth troubleshooting the rest of the device at the time as it is difficult to disassemble. No charge to the customer, but I probably should have checked the primary power section of the cutter first.

I didn’t take a picture of the final solder

The customer still has it. I may try troubleshooting again sometime …
