Like a hot knife through butter

February 15, 2010
from Pahoa, HI
When I worked in a US Forest Service research facility, we acquired one of these gems for the shop and used it to bend, shear and punch steel and aluminum for many different projects. I discovered you can make fairly complex bends that couldn’t be removed from the bender unless you removed the bottom brake shoe. That was not in the manual. It’s just a great piece of equipment and now that I don’t have access to one, I have to think up a reason to get a workspace for one where I can bend, sheer and punch till I drop. It goes through aluminum like it isn't even there and steel is hardly more noticeable then that. The only reason I gave it 5 stars is because there weren't more from which to choose.
