Model 16S (Stub axle): This is one sweet little wheel. This machine is 16" from the center of the wheel to the backbone and instead of a yoke, it has a stub axle.
The stub axle allows you to work very small pieces without pinching your fingers
by placing your hand on top of the upper wheel and rocking it back and
forth. It comes standard with Hoosier Pattern 2x2" anvils but 1x1" and 3x2"
are available. The upper wheel is a Hoosier Pattern 5.5x2" and heat treated to
52 Rockwell C.
Prices for the
Model 16S are: $1700 and up complete with upper wheel and
anvils. Final price depends on which upper wheel and
anvil combination is chosen. Crating and delivery to a local trucking
company is $75. It can also go UPS.
This machine is designed to sit on the corner of a work bench or sticking off
the front about even with the mounting tabs. The feet have pre-drilled holes
for bolting to the work surface. This ensures the operator has good access to
the part without having to lean over.|
It has a throat depth of 23" and will easily shape 16 gauge steel. I've done 14 gauge with it.
The main frame is coated with Line-X truck bed lining by the
local Line-X plant. It is a very attractive and durable coating and is
almost impossible to cut. Standard color is hammertone silver on the legs
Models of the bench wheel up to 36" are available on special order. They will be made from 3x6x1/4 tubing. Legs to convert to free standing are also available.
This machine sells for $2150.00 with a 8x2 upper (heat treated to 52 Rockwell C) and six 2x3" anvils. If you prefer 3" wide rollers the price is $2250.00
A bare frame machine for use with your own upper and anvils is available. Crating and delivery to a local trucking company is $100.00. Shipping is extra and varies based on where you are and if you are going to pick it up at the loading dock or have it delivered to your door.
Angled lower tool arms allow unrivaled access to panels
and is modular. It can quickly be removed and replaced with a custom
design tool arm built to fit specific needs. Special
lower tool arms are available on custom order.
This is the 23B's big brother. It will do everything the bench wheels do only better. This machine is made from 3x6x1/4" tubing and is 40% stiffer than the 23B. In addition, it has tripod mount bolt on legs. This is a superb smaller machine. It is very stable and solid. It will easily shape 14 guage and probably more, I haven't had any 12 guage to test. As with the rest of our machines, the final price varies with the selection of anvils and upper wheels. A complete machine with 2" rollers is $2600.00. With 3" rollers the price is $2700.00. The upper wheel is heat treated to 52 Rockwell c and the machines come with six anvils either 2x3" or 3x3".
Custom lower tool arms can be fabricated to allow you to wheel shapes that would hit the stock tool arm. Any wheel has some shapes that will hit the frame but our wheels are the only ones that have a modular tool arm that can be unbolted and replaced with a tool arm that allows you to wheel any desired shape.
Crating and delivery to a local trucking company is $100. The crate is approximately 36x48x14" and the crated weight is about 350lbs with rollers. Shipping is extra and varies based on where you are and if you are going to pick it up at the loading dock or have it delivered to your door.
THE CROWN IMPERIAL
Our new large machine is the best yet! It has a 36" throat and is the best on the market. As with our other machines, the main frame is Line-X coated. Standard color is hammertone silver with other colors by special order.
As with all Imperial Wheeling Machines, the lower tool arm is modular. Any frame design has some shape that simply will not fit without hitting the frame. We have the only machines on the market that have a way to get around this issue. Our tool arms are modular and easily remove. A special tool arm can be fabricated to address special shapes without having to buy a special purpose machine.
Crown Imperial comes standard with our new quick release and dovetail adjuster. It is made from 10x4x1/4 tubing and is even stiffer than the older Model 34 was. For some time we have been working on an adjuster that provided very smooth action, no movement, and had less height than our previous large machine. The new dovetail adjuster does everything we wanted and more. It is silky smooth and 8" shorter than the previous units which lowers the handwheel for convenience. Because of the increased stiffness of the frame, we moved to fine thread feed rod and implemented a quick release. Operation is as easy as rotating the arm to raise the upper wheel. The axle is still quickly removed for changing to other wheel configurations such as the GoKart slick.
The standard configuration of a 36" throat but special orders of larger sizes are available. Machines can be built to accommodate any desired working height.
The Crown comes standard with a 4x9" upper wheel. It is heat treated to 52 Rockwell and very, very nice. The same great features of our other models are all here.
The bare frame machine (complete except for rollers) is available special order. The Crown complete with 9x4" heat treated upper and set of 3x3 anvils is $3900.00
The front and rear legs bolt on for ease of shipment. Crating and delivery to a local trucking company is $150. The crated weight is about 550 lbs.

Why flats instead of true radius anvils?
You should always use the highest crown anvil that fits the shape you are making. For instance for a door skin, you would rarely use the 1/4" contact flat anvil but rather use the 1" flat one.
