I want one too, but sadly I want one 20 feet long that will quickly and
accurately brake material upto 3/16. Of course I also want to be able to
afford it. LOL.
Good luck on your search Steve. Let us know what you get.
Pexto, Roper-Whitney, Niagara.
Actually I can't think of a bad older American brand.
If you find one check it carefully for damage, people seriously
I've used larger industrial models of the imports which weren't too
bad. The 3-in-1 machines are difficult and fussy but they do work.
steve..Ive got a 5' shear (Pexto) Id sell you rather cheaply. It was a
set shear, converted to hydraulic.
"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the
means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not
making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of
it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different
countries, that the more public provisions were made for the
poor the less they provided for themselves, and of course became
poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the
more they did for themselves, and became richer." -- Benjamin
Franklin, /The Encouragement of Idleness/, 1766
Also DiAcro. They made 24" and 36" finger brakes, and I have
one of the 24" size. I am quite happy with it.
And they do break too -- if you get too close to their maximum
