I hate you... Actually just really jealous.

I have been wanting a ironworker to punch holes since I used one at TVA in 97 on the copper bus...

What, No pictures to make me even more jealous?

David....

it was a scotchman ironworker at TVA, one on rollers with a plug at TVA.(about 600 lbs?). they are about $6500 new.. I was almost ready to write the check for one job I did.

Worth every penny. The last auction I missed by a hour, A ironworker (brand not remembered) sold for $35.. peed me off to miss it.

Is it an old mechanical ironworker or hydraulic?
It will help to see a picture.

Mechanical,hydraulic is okay,but the punches don't last as along and they are slower.

Sure Charlie,you can borrow it,but it weighs 9,500 lbs! http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
