    Rene,
    Go to www.artools.com or www.Scotchman.com and you will find much better ironworkers and cheaper too. Our 65ton is about that same price and will punch a 1-1/16" hole in a 3/4" piece of steel. It will shear 3/4x8" also. They make quick work of cutting and punching for sure and you can use them to break metal as well as notch your tubes to fit up.

    Tim,

    I've used most brands of iron workers out there and I agree there are more capable machines, especially for the price. I thought this one was pretty cool none the less.

    If I ever get set up where I could have one I'd shop the local auctions for one. They are remarkably affordable at auction.

    What I did like about this one was it's portability...did you check out the video?

    Did you know Scotchman has a new 42ton portable that runs on 220 single phase. They have one mounted in a pickup and take it around to do demos. I think it was in the 5400.00 range. Quite tempting.
