They mentioned something about quality control. LOL

you'd figure metal shaping wouldn't be popular enough to get into the MAC catalog. Weird. I wonder what brand it really is?

This is one I found on line but I swear it was a floor mount, as was the plannishing hammer. http://www.mactools.com/product/tabi...1-mpx5000.aspx

And the plannishing hammer, I could swear they were floor mount though. http://72.3.248.94/product/tabid/120...2-mpx5020.aspx

Looks like they designed the hammer frame for the wheel and vise versa.
Mac name must add value. See those prices!

The Grizzly wheels are now in stock! Mine got shipped today. I'll be sure to give a full review on it. Since I've never used one I'm sure it will be plenty enough to keep me happy.

wow, these wheels are tiny. Just getting used to it but my first impressions are that these wheels are too thin to get anything consistent but we'll see. This is the first time using one of these. Will comment later after some man hours. Had to throw in a washer on one side of the big wheel to keep it even with the lower die. No biggie though.

it's theuraputic(sp?) I tell ya. the noises it makes is relaxing too, and I especially like the slight crunching noise it makes when it smooths out a rough surface. What a stress reliever. This thing kicks butt. I will have to do something about the lower piece. It moves around when under pressure but I can just put a couple tacks in there and grind it down til it's stout. No complaints, this thing rocks.

Bending a piece of metal is one thing but being able to give it shape and form is just so rewarding. It is neat to see you enjoying it.
