Coming from Legendary Gasoline Alley in Indianapolis, I see a lot of shaping tools and MetalAce brand is the “cream of the crop”. The unique anvil wheel designs are extremely witty and helpful with those tight spots. The frames have the action of a finely tuned fiddle.
Knowing that a craftsman is only as good as his tools, I use the Imperial 28F machine on every single build.
MetalAce machines are built with serious precision and integrity, and with every stroke those features are carried through the shaping process directly into the parcels that they bear.
