The Eastwood Company has launched a new Bench-Top English Wheel.
English Wheels have been staple tools of metal fabricators for years, but overall size and price constraints have often kept them out of reach of DIY-hobbyists and small shops. Eastwood’s new Bench-Top English Wheel overcomes those issues.
Eastwood’s English Wheel offers a 20" throat and 18" internal height to make this unit one of the biggest bench-top English Wheels on the market.
"When designing this English Wheel, we wanted to offer a professional quality tool that was within reach of DIY-metal shapers and small fabrication shops" said Mark Robidoux, Eastwood Product Manager. "Shipping a large item like an English Wheel can be costly, but the knockdown design we engineered into this English Wheel allows it to ship via Fed-Ex or UPS."
The Eastwood English Wheel's frame is fabricated like large bridge spans, with doubler plates and structural hardware, offering the most rigid frame in its class.
Featuring a large 8" wheel and 5" radius anvil wheel, that can be indexed in different positions, this tool offers unsurpassed forming ability. With X and Y axis adjustment on the large forming wheel, it allows even the most experienced fabricator the adjustability to set up the wheel to personal preference.
