Plasma cutters are pretty cheap now. If you really need one save and buy it so you can spend you thinkindesigninbuildin time/energy on stuff that ain't been built before.

Probably not. The hard part of building a plasma cutter is going to be getting the nozzle for the compressed air and the arc just right. Get it wrong and it won't cut it'll just blow holes.
