Every fabrication shop has to have a good quality english wheel to help in the correct forming of sheet metal. But not all wheels are made the same; strength, rigidity, and throat depth are the most important things when looking at an english wheel.
The EW-42 is as ridged as an english wheel with a throat depth of 850mm can be. It uses 127mm x 127mm x 6,4mm box tubing for the frame work. This frame is fully welded for even less flex when rolling at full capacity. The EW-42 is rated to form up to 1.25mm mild steel, giving the fabricating shop years of quality shaping and forming metal.
