I have an exothermic torch (Slice Torch) that I bought 3 years ago. I used it on several projects but I dont have a need for it right now. This model is selling for $1500 on ebay. I am asking $900.

The sale comes with everything in the pics.
-stricker
-handle
-regulator
-cart
-battery charger
-all hoses and cables

If you are not sure what this is, it used oxygen and a special rod to cut ANYTHING. Search on youtube for exothermic torch. it will cut all metals, concrete, stone. It is impressive! The rods can be bent to reach around area that a normal torch cannot reach.

This will blow all kinds of stuff apart! It doesn't even care about rust. A regular torch has issues with rust, and I have used one of these to cut apart very rusty crap with rust between angle and channel iron, and I have cut thru 2" plate with rust under it, where a regular torch wouldn't touch it.
This is the stuff they used demoing the twin towers that had concrete on the steel.
This is also the cats ass for blowing holes thru king pins or center pivot pins on articulated loaders and tractors. Once you get a hole thru it, and let things cool back off (super heats the pin part, smashes rust) the pin will drive out much easier.
It throws wicked sparks and dross !!!!!!! A full set of leathers is recommended, as well as make sure where it blows thru, you use heavy steel to protect electrical wires, hoses, etc. Tin aint gonna stop it!
And when blowing thru king pins and suck, make sure you are lined up really well, it is going to blow steel and crap out of it's way, and doesn't care if there is a small gap or coat of rust or concrete there, it is getting blown out!
I have screwed up a couple of axle beams on trucks with my bad aim.
Can get slice rods in 18" length and 36" length, and some are made to stack together.

I will try to get it out soon and cut some plate and take some pics for you, of course clean depends on the operator, I have seen a pic of military guys using it to cut a titanium airplane or something like that that crashes, the cut it to get on trucks then took it back to the hanger to reweld
