Harbor frieght flanging and punch tool?

Post by diverlloyd »

Has anyone used one of the harbor frieght flanging and punch tools? It seems to be the same as higher priced ones. I usually don't purchase tools from there so I don't know what to expect from them. If any of you have used it please let me know. As usual all replies good or bad a greatly appericated.

Are you talking about their pneumatic tool for piecing in body panels ? I have one they work but you seem to need a constant 140# of air pressure to run it well , i found, maybe more on a roadsters thicker metal.

Thanks for the replies I guess I will pick one up and see how it does. Hopefully I get a good one on the first try.
