A new monster to find room for...
« on: October 13, 2014, 08:06:45 AM »
Having failed to move into a new, larger, workshop, what better way to celebrate stuffing the quart back into the pint pot, than buying another machine? Preferably, a big one....



Now I can fold up to 4ft of 2mm steel, which should be more than plenty for doing most of the Jag work, which is the reason I purchased the beast. Unloading it was entertaining, to say the least, given that it weighs the better part of 1/2 ton, and is massively front heavy. Still, it only fell over once, and did more damage to the floor than to itself, and almost no-one was killed in the process, although much swearing and cursing was involved.

Now to learn how to make boxes!
Cheers!
Ade.

Looks a well made beefy tool.

I have same trouble, all I can say is base what work you need to do and keep machines used easily accessible.
Throw the rest outside, temporary of course.

Nothing like having a big bender in the workshop!  :thumbup: 

Nice bit of kit.... While you're in the mood to buy astonishingly heavy machine tools, could I interest you in a circle cutter able to create a 36" circle in 1mm ish steel!?
