The Power Max 30, like most of the Hypertherm plasma cutters I have seen, were designed for drag cutting i.e. you place the tip at 90 degrees flat on the piece being cut and drag along your cut line.
The guide tool referenced in the prior post was designed for Miller machines which do not come with drag tips.
Check out the Powermax 39 setup video at the bottom of this page. You can get the optional Hyperthem snap on cap at your LWS.
