    Pittsburgh Machines

    Which pittsburgh machines does everyone use here? What machines are the most reliable and the best bang for the buck?

    You would probably do well in avoiding one with Union Made parts in it.....

    I've got a LockFormer. They are in my opinion the most reliable. Cost doesn't matter to me as much when it lasts forever.

    Hey I'm in Manitoba as well. What company do you own/work for?

    I have a Lockformer that looks like it may have come over on the Mayflower and it still works like a new one.

    How are you going to use it? 40 hours a week, or just a few times a week? The Lockformers are nice, but may be overkill for just making a few fittings here and there. I have an Eagle/Morlin that was cheap and works very well. I would not use it as a high production machine though.

    I have been watching ebay for over a year and have never seen a used unit in that price range. The best price for new is around $1800, but I have never used the brand and would not gamble with its quality.

    Does anyone use Brown Boggs or know where to get them?

    Can someone school me on these.
    What is the difference in how many stations a machine has? More is better? Faster? What about making radius?
