Real Heavy Duty for it's size.
I was expecting something smaller and lighter in build quality,. This unit may only cut/bend a 12 inch long piece of metal, but it is strong and heavy. I had to use an engine hoist to get it from the wooden box on the floor up to the bench. So far very happy with it.

it finally arrived: Our new T26472Z 12" 3-in-1 Sheet Metal Machine! 08/05/2017 9:51:35 PM

We tried and missed twice to buy a T26472Z 3-in-1 and finally got one via eBay, For some reason when we first tried to buy one, they were in stock in Missouri but could not be sold to us in California because of "danger of damage in shipping". When we finally did get a chance to buy one through eBay it was shipped from Missouri--go figure. This is a very sturdy tool and a good thing, too because the way it was shipped was none too gentle. When the truck arrived with our new 3-in-1 the machine was mostly inside the remains of a very flimsy "crate". The machine itself was securely fastened to a small wooden platform that simply sat upon a standard fork-lift sized pallet. It was only held in place by the fact that this machine weighs in at something north of 150 pounds.

Once freed from the shipping materials the T26472Z was mounted on a steel cart and put to work. We use it mainly for fabricating small aluminum devices out of 6-mil thick aluminum. The raw material is shipped on a roll, so the first stop on the 3-in-1 is rough cutting pieces roughly 28" long on the shear: works great. Next step in flattening the strips through the slip roll: also works well. Last step on the machine is folding the aluminum pieces with the brake. We had to grind the edge of the 2 inch finger for our application, but we can get another if needed.

These 3-in-1 machines are often dismissed as "hobbyist toys" and not useful for industrial applications. We're a small company making precision devices in small quantities, so having all three functions on one machine is really a benefit in reduced time. Things that we make are small enough that the 12" shear and rest of the tools are well suited. We'd looked at several of the other 12" 3-in-1 tools but they didn't seem sufficiently stiff to hold the tolerances we need, so I was very glad when this one came on the market. If you need a good stiff tool to make small quantities of small parts--the T26472Z 12" 3-in-1 Sheet Metal Machine is just what you need.

I love this machine. It does everything I wanted it to do and more. 07/26/2017 1:58:10 PM

I"m building standard gauge model trains. and this machine does the job verry well. I bend 22 ga metal 12 inches wide all the time. and heaver once in awhile. The shear works great for 22 gauge. And the rolls make great tank cars.
