    Deburr aluminium thin sheet

    Interesting, I found the opposite, that is what I was using, it's tedious and rarely neat, difficult on curved corners. Was easier to use a high grit paper on a block and run that over. This past couple of weeks, I bought a bench mount for a drill, tried various abrasive discs, so far found the...

    Deburr aluminium thin sheet

    Apologies, missed this reply. Looks good but perhaps a bit aggressive for the thin sheet I work with. I did look at the commercial machines, pricey for what they are IMO, I'm sure for high volume they provide value for money but not for me. I did wonder if I could rig a table router up with a...

    Actuator on Bench Mounted press or brake

    Indeed I use, as stated on of the small hydraulic knockout pumps vast improvement on hand turning Qmax, albeit still hand operated version, fixed in another jig for repeat use. The only I holes I drill these days is the initial hole for the smallest draw bar I have, as not yet organised a punch...

    Actuator on Bench Mounted press or brake

    I'm looking at options to power, foot pedal operated, initially an Manuform bench press, eventually shop press and even possible the small brake I have (switching back to manual when needed). Working in thin sheet alloy most of the time, I do far more hole punches than I drill so powering this...

    Actuator on Bench Mounted press or brake

    Anyone added an actuator onto a press brake or bench mounted press? Looking at alternative options to air power or oil hydraulic. I found one instance in an old auction catalogue so far, of a custom modification of a bench mounted punch/press, just a couple of images on google, but no others...

    Deburr aluminium thin sheet

    Looks good, similar to the commercial hand held machines. Better on the plate projects I imagine. I would tend to agree it's perhaps more aggressive than I'm looking for on thin sheet. The commercial machines I've seen, similar to the one you linked, often use opposing flap wheels, pricey...

    Deburr aluminium thin sheet

    Whilst not home model, DIY engineers are always the most versatile I find for solutions. Having used a Noga single deburr tool for some time it's brilliant, and tried and failed to get any decent consistent result with the twin wheel version, I'm on the look out of alternatives. Both the hand...

    Hydraulic Knockout Punches UK/ Metric

    I understand Greenlee use the same, 20mm & 10mm metric or at least in current set up, though only casually looked. The longer draw stud has proven fantastic, I did 24 holes today in no time 80mm diameter, proving to be a lot simpler and less messy than drill press & holesaw. Next task, I'm...

    Hydraulic Knockout Punches UK/ Metric

    I hear you on the chinese stuff but considering 85% of re-badged tools originate there these days... Greenlee punch here, $800 - $900 similar chinese $80 - they both punch holes, I'd rather put the $800 - 900 towards a powered iron worker which would give even more flexibility long term...

    Hydraulic Knockout Punches UK/ Metric

    Hi, Anyone use these tools, specifically the cheaper chinese versions? My question is, as most of the sellers copy & paste the same vague spec sheet: Does anyone have info on the supplied draw bars? They refer to the smaller pilot hole 11.5mm for the smaller punches, then fail to give the...
