we have a machine for each, for long straight duct the buttonlock is quicker to put together, but you can't make an elbow with it, also for coil box doors, the pittsburg is easier to open up and pound back over, it's hard to remove and replace the door if it is buttonlocked, once you spread it out it won't lock back in very nice.You can't fix stupid

I have a Lockformer with Pipe lock on the other side. To radius, you will need to pittsburgh the heel or throat and use a (ahh shoot got brainlock) 1/4" turning tool (? help?) on the radiused edges.I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.-Daniel Boone-
Just because a person wanders does not mean he is lost.

I need to add to this post! We are in the same boat, going to buy another Pitts shortly. The sheetmetal Pros on the "other" site said to "STAY AWAY" from the Tinnocker and overseas multi. units.
The overseas multi units fit prefectly with what we need??
Also been looking for "used" on Ebay also for months. Unless you want some 3ph. industrial stuff it just aint there!
Any input?Life is too short, Behappy!
