Not for the Cutmaster 42 / SL40 Plasma System
December 22, 2018
First, Cyberweld is awesome. Don't let this review interfere with their reputation. I bought this circle guide for my Cutmaster 42 with a SL40 torch. The mounting ears that hold the guide wheel and the radius rod hit the body of the torch and you cannot make a full circle cut without a lot of re-positioning of either the work piece our yourself. I called ESAB and they confirmed that, even though the adapter bushing fits, it was never designed for the SL40 torch. Save yourself the headache if you have the SL40. Cyberweld was quick to refund my purchase price once returned. I hope Cyberweld will do an update and state this on the product description - and not even offer the adapter bushing with this guide.
ProsIt seems like a great guide for every other TD torch.
ConsThe guide wheel can only go on the outside of the radius. It would be nice to have an option on the inside so you could cut "edge-to-edge" with a full circle. For that reason, I cannot recommend this for even the other torches.
