    Feeding it raw metal to bend will be the tough part!

          Well, sometimes you use a 5 lb sledge to hammer a nail.

            Sweet...you did it! Everybody should have a press brake.

            Interesting flat plate deal it has there...with that you can do some great sheet metal embossing by cutting masonite into shapes with a jigsaw and using for dies, designs you could never do with a bead roller. Presumably with the plates removed it still has the usual grooves for American-style tooling ("Hey Pops, got any old bolsters/dies you're not using?")

            Don't tip that top-heavy b*tch over getting it off the trailer (ughh!), if a forklift isn't handy I like to chain stuff down to a pair of railroad ties and then slide it or roll it on peeler cores.

            Three-phase? (Insert evil laugh here...)

            I like the No Parking sign ("cars parked here will be used for parts").

                  it does have the grooves - that was the one bit I was a bit concerned about when I bought it... but nope, they're there, just unbolt the plates
                  funny about the dies - I never mentioned dies to my dad; and when I sent him the picture after I'd picked it up he said "I think I have some dies you can have"

                  3 phase, but don't have 3 phase at my house.... no worries, a single phase motor isn't has as expensive as I originally thought

                  My original removal thought started with my bobcat....problem is two-fold, 1) the bobcat probably couldn't lift one end of that brake without flipping; and 2) even if it could, I don't think to door is tall enough to lift from the top and get it inside...

                  my plan is to do what you've suggested... roll it on some schedule 40 pipe into the shop. Believe it or not, this one isn't as top heavy as my dad's....

                  the other thought is to dig some temporary holes in the driveway, then roll it into the shop.... I only have to go down maybe a foot and that's pretty easy to do with the bobcat... then pull it off with my 12k winch. Once it's in the shop, I have rollers that I can use to move it to where it will rest....

                  in short, an adventure awaits

                        then you should see my dads.... hmmm, I might have a picture

                        *edit, I do have a picture... you can see the end of it on the semi I pulled out of a hole




                        and I'm just getting my money's worth out of that trailer... paid $300.00 for it - and I think overpaid - it's now a $700 trailer because I had to put new tires on it.

                          nope, nor abrasions, nor contusions, nor broken bones.... I did get grief from my wife, the mechanical engineer, who said I couldn't do it

                              I love my badass Chinese made winch... it has a cordless remote. I figured I'd have to use the snatch block to pull it into the shop and then do it 1/2 at a time.... oh hell no, it pulled the entire thing into the shop in basically one, long pull. not even smoking at the end....

                              The winch is american designed, chinese made for an american company - so the quality is right, as is the price (1/4 a warn)
