Very cool 'stuff', looks like all were having a great time. Wish you lived closer! I'd visit just to take a look around that shop.

Thanks, Will.
There was a variety of interests. Good to see the interested young lads.

I agree Will. If Kent was on the Right side of the country I'd attend every one of his classes. Because he's living on the Wrong side of the country, I mostly have to content myself with watching his videos, which are superb.

Thank you for your compliments, guys.

The machine is a new reproduction of an old (little-known) ERCO power shrinker, which we sell here. (The ERCO 476 is much more widely known but more unreasonable to deal with - )
An instructive video of the machine making some small parts is here:
https://youtu.be/K1aPEjaUeR0
We make the jaw sets for it, in both the standard shrink-stretch and extended shrink-stretch configurations.

The fellow in the ylo ear-protectors was trying to stretch some 20ga steel, and learned about the "power of separation" with the grab-and-yank stretch jaws. I told him not to feel too badly, that we also sell them to other victims.
