Thank you so much. Yes I have heard the older punch presses without hydraulic? air clutch? (not sure) should be scrapped. I've got to look into that. They are so heavy it might cost me as much as I make to have them hauled away. We are in Upland, CA. I'll list some of our bigger items and put pictures. Thanks again.
Looks like there are a lot of scrapyards in your area, with scrap prices way up you might get one to haul them off without knocking much off what they pay as long as they can load easily.
