Eckold Handformer HF 100 PA

The Eckold Handformer HF 100 PA is an air powered shrinker/stretcher that replaces the laborious hammer work when forming sheet metal. With this machine you have both hands on the job for easy and precise holding and guiding of work pieces while releasing strokes and adjusting pressure with the foot-pedal switch. Quite an advantage when handling large and bulky parts.

The air powered HF 100 PA has a built in pressure relief valve to avoid overloading tools. Each step on the foot pedal releases one working stroke. Pressing down the foot pedal switch lightly releases a stroke with limited pressure. If you want the full power of the machine applied you simply press the pedal down all the way.
