I know that camel joke! Haven't heard it in years! :lol:

So, in this age when almost EVERYONE has a smart phone (with a built in timer function) they gave up on a working battery charger because it's timer wouldn't shut it off automatically? We are in deep kimchee as a society.

Brought a Hossfeld #1 Universal Iron Bender home from the scrap project. It's a bit tatty but with a tidy up, it can (and will) be put back to work. I reckoned that, sooner or later, the dies would show up and, happily, they eventually did. Of course these machines have dies for almost any kind of project and no, I wouldn't be so lucky as to find a set with one of everything, but the basic set I found appears to be intact. Couldn't be more pleased.

I already have a cheap, knock-off that is offered by Harbor Freight and both these machines are an invaluable tools for making all sorts of unique, interesting and decorative shapes with metal. In fact, I would dare say that the Made In China version is every bit as good as the Hossfeld. Quite a bit of thought went into their design and once you get the hang of it, these machines make many jobs far easier.

Cheers,
TJ
