In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to safely use the Edwards ironworker. Save time and effort with this highly versatile and powerful tool that shears steel plate (up to 5/8" thick), punches holes (up to 1-1/6" diameter in 5/8" thick steel), notches, and shears angle iron (up to 1/4" x 4" x 4") and round stock. Don’t get held back with drilling times and bit changes. This incredibly powerful machine cuts and punches holes in thick steel almost instantly!

The bender is the perfect partner to the ironworker. Learn to safely bend round and square tube, from 1/2" to over 1-1/2". Bend tube to exact angles and stop wasting time cutting and welding corners!
