Went to my sons today to help him work on his garage/ shop.

We,re building double walls inside so he will have the equivilent of 2x8 wall thickness for good insulation values. Walls are 14ft-6in high.

Walked in there this morning and he was standing there waiting with a big grin on his face and sitting just inside the big door was his purchase on friday.

He,d bought a working "Peddinghaus Iron Worker" from a college for scrap price, c/w all the dies , manuals etc.

No pics, no gloat. That's the rule.

Sorry i have no pics, not educated enough yet for that!:D

This is not a HUGE machine, i think the spec plate on the side stated it would punch 3/4 in holes in 5/8 plate.

However it certainly is a nice addition to his shop equipment he is building up. (And the price was right!)
