Does anybody have experience cutting copper sheet metal with a plasma cutter? Does it blow out or give a nice cut? How about discoloration? I have more questions. If you've worked with copper, please PM me.

Cutting it with a plasma cutter will not be clean unless you know someone with a high def cutter.Depending on the thickness you can use thin cutting wheel on skill saw.If you want to spend some money have it water jet.

I have a hi-def plasma table. In my opinion copper cuts great. We don't get may calls for it and I have not recieved any complaints either. Let me know if you want more info or want to come check out my table.
