I just picked up a Snap On YA2230 plasma cutter, knowing that it was not working, but did not know what was wrong. I'm trying to trouble shoot it, and hopefully you guys can guide me on what could be wrong with it.
It came with no tip or consumables, so I got those from a friend and we tried it. It powers up fine, I hooked up my compressed air and tried it on a piece of aluminum. It cut about 1/16" into the aluminum and gave up. I couldn't get it to arc again after that.
It's probably 15 or 20 years old. So far I have $0 into it, so if I need to replace some parts, I'll still be WAY ahead.
Any ideas, or places I should start to research this? Thanks for the help.
