Default Rotex Turret Hand Punch

Other than punching holes, is it worth having one? What else can they be used for in metal shaping?

Default Super machines

Rotex is still made here in San Leandro California. Super punches - but I went with the Wiedemann R2 as it is more affordable.

I don't know of any metal shaping use the Rotex can be put to. But if you need to punch holes, it's nice to have.

Just picked this up today along with this other piece of equipment. The Niagra unit cuts out circles up to 48 inches from what I'm told.

Ugghh I can't get the pics to load.
