    Very nice! Those 5120's are monsters! A portable tow-behind unit would do the same thing, but how boring is that? Putting something together from collected parts is way more satisfying.

    Unfortunately for some time now, some companies have decided that their shipping departments are 'profit centers', and seem to charge accordingly. And if you don't inquire, it's their opportunity to...

    I would have made one. And chamfered the sharp edges as well. Shame on Quincy.

    Might require thinner Hyd oil in really cold conditions? Keeping it sprayed down with thinned ATF would help prevent rust issues and it's low cost as well. Both of mine are in unheated space, but...

    That's not how my business works. 20 bucks at the steel yard...not in 2021, much more. Then they cut it wrong the first time.

    This is very confusing. If you don't need to cut 1/4" very often, buy a shear that'll almost but never be able to cut it............??

    Very interesting! I don't think I've ever read the numbers and totals, mostly just 'heard some details' from older guys telling stories about the plant. Not sure if they still build Bendix starter...

    Now days, for the floor space required, the limited ability of a shear, etc. Going with a cnc plasma cutter makes much more sense.
