Has anyone comments (either for or against) the Gabro small sheet metal folders like:

I'm looking to be able to do a bit of box and pan folding and am also considering this sort of thing:

Usual problem - no floor space - so need get a lot in a little - the Warco Formit appeals as it shears as well

Hi Andrew,
I have a 24" Formit and generally find it to be good ............. but -
If you ever try to use the shear anywhere near it's stated capacity (1 mm steel) over the full length, you'll need to put on about 200 Lbs and join a gym first - it can be done but it's ******* hard! For smaller stuff it's excellent.
The box/pan folder works well but it's only really designed for 90 degree bends (which is not unusual - its kind of hard to make a box with bends less than 90 degrees :)) but it can be slightly limiting for general folding work).
The bending rolls are great.
As a general purpose tool it's great.
