Here's the jig for the plasma cutter:





And the results:



I'm down to one minute for each keg top! The cut is pretty accurate, as well. Here's a YouTube video of the rig in action:


(let me know if the video is screwed up...it's not playing right on my computer)

I'm so completely disapointed in you Yuri! I can't believe that you didn't motorize that turntable and sycronize its movement with the cutting rate of the plasma cutter.

Very nice work as usual!

Future improvement - note the single leg that is a bit taller so that I can mount a motor and bracket there...
