“The best investment I made for my sign shop was buying my Computerized Cutters – Router, Model 26 channel letter bender and Clincher to build my channel letter business.  It has been a blessing.

I really appreciate Carl inventing the bender.  I have grown both the volume and more importantly the profitability of my channel letter business since I acquired these machines.  And I can continue to grow my business with these machines.  They are dependable and durable.  Made in America –  does mean quality where these machines are concerned.

I highly recommend your products to anyone who plans to grow their sign business. Your machines paid for themselves many times over!  Great job!”

–Ricky Guzman, All Pro Signs, Dallas, Texas

We asked the customer why there was only a single call to our tech support in the 4 years since he'd purchase our Accu-Bend Model 26 and Accu-Clinch Clincher. Here's what he said:

"Well Don, two things.

One, we are really that self sufficient that we can usually figure things out our selves.

Two, your machine has not had any major issues and really are THAT GOOD. All we need to do is keep it lubed and clean."

–Jeff, California
