Metal Working Tools Overview
Fixing farm equipment, like forage boxes, means you need to have the right tools. As a result, below are metal working tools we use in the shop all the time to the chopper boxes rebuilt the right way.
Miller Mig Light Duty Wire Feed Welder
This machine has the ability to weld sheet metal and thin steels. It is also able to save more used parts especially from the “head” area of a forage box.
Miller Mig Heavy Duty Wire Feed Welder
This welder is for our heavier metals including framework, running gear frames, and so on. A benefit is that the welder leaves a nice slag-free clean weld, but can still penetrate the metal as needed.
Miller Plasma Cutter
This plasma cutter enables us to cut metal up to 1/2 inch thick with ease. Also, thinner metals do not warp when we use this device. With a torch painted metals often burn, but this is not a problem when using the plasma cutter. Also, we do less grinding. Importantly, we make a cleaner cut and in the end, the finished product is superior.
45 Ton Iron Worker
The iron worker can cut up to 1/2 inch flat steel. Additionally, we cut angle iron of 1/4 X 1/4 . Another feature is its ability to punch a hole as little as a quarter-inch and as large as an inch. Extra bits are also included for making slotted and square holes. We create the finished product much easier through the use of this device. Lastly, we are able to manufacture certain parts that are not readily available on the open market.
Sheet Metal Break
Panels, head pans, and patches that are bent to match existing parts can all be made with the sheet metal break. It can bend up to 3/16 steel. This machine enables us to save you money on your chopper box through the reuse of old parts.
