The capacity to notch steel is 2" wide up to 3" long in steel up to 1/4" thick. It is capable of biting off a square shape, rectangle shape or V-shape. The rectangular notch is useful for coping back a flange on a piece of angle iron so it can fit up against another angle or channel at 90 degrees. You can V-shape notch by turning your part at 45 degrees to the machine. V-notching is useful when making a frame out of angle iron. You V notch where you plan to bend the angle to 90 degrees.

Stripper Reducing Plate


The purpose is to minimize distortion when punching thinner metals, especially when using smaller punches. It mounts to your stripper bar with 2 screws and has a spring loaded pin to align it. It can be swung away when its not used.


This special stripper works differently than the less expensive Stripper Reducing Plate because it maintains constant pressure while punching which will minimize distortion of delicate metal parts, thin metal parts and soft copper buss bars. Click to see a VIDEO.


Set any angle you want on this Protractor Angle Gauge when shearing flat steel or when punching slotted holes. The Protractor has notches every 15 and also at 22.5 but it is often used at 90. It works by fitting into the slot on the shear table, punch gauging table or up against the punch table. Its also reversible so people who are left handed will find it just as easy to use.
