Lowbuck Tools Metal Machine

I just read the article on Lowbucks Metal Machine in the Nov. issue of Street Rodder. Has anyone else seen this or heard anything about it? Looks pretty cool, but by the time you buy all the options, you would have a chunk of change in it. 'course a rodder could always find a way around some of the units.

Check it out at www.lowbucktools.com

re:Lobuck Metal Machine

I wonder if a guy could set up a ram from a port-a-power to the punch, break, louver press and stretcher / shrinker? Actually.....some of the units could be made up at home. Gonna check some catalogs......

While at Winfields taking some classes, He showed us a few homemade tools. An airbrake (BIG RIG) was used for a louver cutter.

Good idea..probably worth it to get the master plate and plan..fellow can add the pieces he needs as the budget or need arises..and that wwould not take up much room in the shop for us space constrained types..

All I know is I am in the wrong business. I checked that site out and saw what he was getting for a Dzus dimple tool....$40 a pop. I have made hundreds of the same type over the years for an hourly wage. I have made louver dies, etc. I definately need to get some equipment and start me a sideline business at home
