WOW! That's pretty impressive...a place that i used to do security work for, had a plate roller that the maintenance guys would routinely roll 1" thick plate steel in. Looked like a giant slip roller, and it was pretty impressive to watch it work. Their shop also had a massive plate shear, and smaller metal brakes. I became friends with those guys, and whenever I needed a bracket or something bent or cut for the race car, they were more than happy to help out! They had these big wooden crates made that they would keep under the shear for drops...and the stuff they considered scrap was typically way overkill for anything I might possibly need. Unfortunately...there were no pics allowed on the facility so I don't have any pics of the stuff lol.

Wow I have seen induction benders that big, but not cold roll. Probably all kinds of cool tools in the large piping industry that I've never seen.

That is cool!

This must not be in the US? If it was I would expect to see all sorts of OSHA required railings and guards in place making the machine nearly impossible to operate.
