SHEET metal machines have found a useful place in the model engineer’s workshop, relieving us of things like bending sheet around jam jars, folding between bits of angle iron and jagged cutting with snips. They are available in a range of sizes and this latest one is a small version, but will still handle sheet up to 8” wide, which will suffice for many of us. It has all the features found in the larger formers for shearing bending and rolling sheet metal.

Features include: 

  1. Three rolls including rear pinch roll and top slip out roll

  2. Segmented press brake tooling for box and pan folding up to 90°

  3. Hardened and ground reversible shear blade

  4. Front squaring arm and rear back stop

  5. Operating handle can be left or right side

  6. Capacity in all three operations 1mm

  7. Roll diameter  24mm

  8. Dimensions  (L x W x H) 320 x 200 x 250mm not including handle grips

  9. Weight 17kg
