We just purchased a used Scotchman 40 ton iron-worker from Montana, which is due to arrive next week!  If you’re not familiar with an iron-worker, they’re like giant Swiss-army knives for hydraulic forming.  The Scotchman machine we now own is capable of shearing 3/16″ plate up to 14″ wide and can punch 1″ diameter holes through 1/2″ thick steel plate.  Instead of spending ten’s of minutes drilling holes though thick plate, this hydraulic Sasquatch can punch them out in seconds!
