    Default Metal King multi purpose machine

    Hi, I have inherited this machine and don't know all of what it does. Does anyone on this forum have any information about it. I will have to sell it so will have to work out what price too. I know a few things it does - flattens, bends pipes, twists, etc. Thanks in advance!

    I have found a Brisbane company still making a similar machine:The company is Metal Ace (Exelmetal) and the machine is called 'Complete Metal Ace Bar System'. The one I have, has one more gadget on it, a bending apparatus for shaping a disc into concave shape.

    Default Metal King multi purpose Machine

    Hi Ozdog,
    Thats the crowd. At one time I believe they had a Trademark /Copyright legal battle with the Metalcraft mob as they sported a way too similar trade name and colour scheme on their machinery. They have had a name change. I remember they were near the Gold Coast.

    I only know of this through speaking with a MetalCraft trade rep who was doing a demo for the High School Marts teachers in our area at the time. about 12 to 15 years back from my shaky memory.

    At least you now have an idea of what the pricing of a new machine is .Please have a read through the appropriate sticky containing the advertising rules. It is important that if an item is advertised through our sub forum, then it can't be offered on gum tree or Thief bay at the same time.

    It gets back to goods being accepted as sold on the separate venues and very upset people,so we are trying to avoid all that.

    Thanks for that. It looks like there may be a chance the family keeps it and has a go with it. Could be interesting.
