    So for the totally uninformed among us, me included.....can you 'splain how that's different and better than a plain vanilla chunk of Punch and Die?

    Mostly hardened and ground to precision specs. Can type the numbers into the control and hit damn close to proper angle on first hit. Also being precision, can buy more of the same at a later date and they will match up. These are also 75 deg so easier to air bend to 90, not bottom out and coin which takes more tonnage.

    I'm still learning all this stuff too.

    You need a big dispenser for those rolls.
    Can you move the picture of the press brake tooling to somewhere else, I would like to see those.

    Just another day pushing the limits of the machines. 10" hot rolled 1045 in an 8" chuck. Sucked the wnmg tool up in the turret enough to get .100" clearance before running out of travel. Have to remove the tool holder to change the insert, then of course the probe arm can't come down with the stock in. Big sandvik face groover, actually had to slow the feed down a little to keep the load meter out of the red. Fun times...
