    Good score. Just be mindful that it is not hydraulic and once you engage the clutch it will follow through its stroke until it returns up. Think before you press down because you can't stop it mid stroke.

    Thanks for pointing that out although I am quite familiar with the concept, (I have a Pendinghaus 60 ton mechanical iron worker) these machines have to be treated with respect.

    60 INCH Mechanical Shear

    So yesterday I answered an ad for a fellow looking for a mig gas bottle.

    Today I sold him this full 330 cu ft bottle of C25 which MORE than paid for the shear.

    Some days just seem to go so smooth.....

    Edit. Oops forgot the pic

    And my point being I got a good deal on the shear ó- I did NOT overcharge for the bottle.

    What don't you have? Peddinghaus is top of the line in mechanical iron workers and yours look mint! My first welding job at a tank shop they had a 105 ton Peddinghaus 210 Super 20. It was the cats meow but no stopping once you push the pedal or press the button for the punch. I liked the punch because you could lower it onto your center punch mark.

    This is the only IW I have ever used so I have zero experience but I canít imagine NOT having this feature.

    Yet! I used a 120 ton Kingsland hyd. ironworker and in order to line up the center punch mark you had to put it in jog mode and then switch it back to punch mode. Kind of annoying. Most of the guys tried to lift the plate up to the punch mark instead playing with the switch.

    Thatís the quickest way If I have a good center punch divot and the workpiece is small enough to lift easily.

    Oh I think ronsii was alluding to this pic of me from the fork lift waving goodbye to my solid fuel forge.

    On the Peddinghaus, you pulled the handle forward and the punch would lower and you could lift the punch up and down to line it up. Then you pushed the button on the end and it punched the hole. Once you release the handle to lower the punch, the only way to reset in the up position is to push the button to punch. Never have to lift anything. Punched a lot of rectangular manways for tanks with it.
