Default Magnabend inventor joining.

Hi, Alan Bottomley here,

I want to join AllMetalShaping so that I can contribute to users who have problems/questions regarding the Magnabend sheet metal folder. (I am the inventor of this machine).
I live in the small quaintly-named town of "Snug" which is in the southern part of Tasmania, Australia.

Welcome Alan.

Your Magnabend is a seriously good invention; I have been using several since 1985,

Cheers Charlie

Hi Dan,
There is not much that you can do to increase the clamping force of the magnet.
If you were starting from scratch you would make the magnet bigger but that is not an option for you.

However have a look at this page of my website:
