  • small punch press

    I found a neat little niagara 101 punch press. The tonnage isn't marked but it has about an 18" flywheel. Any ideas?
    (I've always wanted my own punch press...)

      not sure of tonnage but the cycle time is very fast, they are great for cross hole punching tubing, and small gang punching ops.

      pop, make $.25 as fast as you can feed it.

      pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25pop, make $.25

      you get the idea.

      realy I just have built the dies, I never have run one, little gray haired ol ladys run the thing.

        The shop I used to work at had me making punch press dies and setting the things up. Did a couple of progressive dies while I was there. Nothing that fancy though. Anyway I always thought they were interesting machines that could do neat stuff. scary as hell setting up a new die set though
        Not sure how useful this little one would be but it's only about 2' high and weighs a few hundred lbs.
        Maybe stamping out fishing lures...

            I just accumulate nearly servicable junk and put a bunch of time in stuff. Currently working on the shaper, a heat treat oven, a milling machine and lathe #2...
            Love that grader Ken!
            Oh yea I got all the parts for that servo drive and finally put it back together... Then I got another one that works...

                Little old ladies without fingers run the things - I prefer the manual type - a Jarecki die tryout press with a wheel - 23 ton capacity and all 10 fingers.

                pop - $.25 - pop - $.25 - pop - ouch A.T.

                  I've got a small one as well with about a 12" flywheel. It is marked as a "4 ton"

                        I've got one with a four foot flywheel rated at 60 tons. I make really big lures!

                            Sorry to be so long without a reply. I came by it at a surplus joint about ten years ago and my sister used it for a long time to cut out stencils for her greeting card business. (pretty light duty)Since then I have been waiting for retirement to have the time to fix it after she dropped off the truck when she she returned to me!!
