    I wouldn't, since the lcthc ships with an external divider interface, stick with that. I'd avoid the internal voltage divider on your plasma altogether.

    Is that a question or a statement?

    My pierce delay varies in Sheetcam based on the thickness of the material. I use the Hypertherm cut charts to determine what my pierce delay should be.
