 Pressbrake without pressbars 

$700.00

COMMENTS ON ORDERING:
1.   Notice the pressbrake comes without pressbars .

2.  You may need a second pressbrake if you have a large number of  students in the class,
or the course is short.  For instance, one teacher had only one class of 15 students, but the
course was only 6 weeks long.  Since one student will tie up the pressbrake for about 7 days,
so a second pressbrake was needed.

3.  Usually two press brakes with one each of the pressbars per lab are sufficient.

4.  There are two additions under consideration.
    (1)  Electrostatic powder coating.  This is a very good coating and relatively clean process.
           Equipment cost is one of the problems to overcome.
    (2)  Method of permanently marking the box with the schools name and the name of the
            person who made the box.  Several processes are under consideration,
            but they have to meet my criterial for being educationally efficient.
