The Eastwood Company has launched a new Bench-Top English Wheel – professional quality with a knock-down design! English Wheels have been staple tools of metal fabricators for years, but overall size and price constraints have often kept them out of reach of DIY-hobbyists and small shops. Eastwood’s new Bench-Top English Wheel overcomes those issues. Eastwood’s English Wheel offers a 20" throat and 18" internal height to make this unit one of the biggest bench-top English Wheels on the market. "When designing this English Wheel, we wanted to offer a professional quality tool that was within reach of DIY-metal shapers and small fabrication shops," said Mark Robidoux, Eastwood Product Manager. "Shipping a large item like an English Wheel can be costly, but the knockdown design we engineered into this English Wheel allows it to ship via Fed-Ex or UPS."
