COMMENTS ON ORDERING:
1.     The sheetmetal tray and the tool box may seem to be basically the same.  There
    is some duplication but the units have different purposes.  The sheetmetal tray was
    developed to teach layout and some sheetmetal processes are used.  The toolbox
    requires very little layout, but has many more forming processes.

2.   Manuals are available for a box and pan brake or my pressbrake.   When ordering more manuals please
    specify which you want.

3.  If you plan to use the pressbrake to make the sheetmetal tray and the toolbox,
   you will almost certainly need an extra pressbrake.

SOURCE 12
    The best and most economical oven is an electric kitchen range.
    Several schools have let it be known they needed one and some
    parents  donated a good use one to the school.  To buy a  new one
    look under "Electric Appliances, Major" in Yellow pages of phone book.
