    Talking Got my early Christmas gift today!

    Got my early Christmas gift today! An expensive rocket toy!


    After years of using my manual clipper closing so many bags on a monthly basis, my elbow and wrist could no longer take the beating so this air-powered clipper should serve me well til retirement. It's a beast weights almost 60 lbs.

    It's sounds like a well earned gift Kenny and it will certainly get a lot of use. Due to the weight sounds like it should be mounted on something movable (with wheels) so you can move it with ease and use without lifting it.

    Thank you Pat! Yes this pneumatic clipper is pipe mounted as compared to my old manual clipper that was wall mounted.

    Ricardo, yes it looks more industrious(and much heavier!) than I have expected!

    I know right Al? I was going to order one years back but due to dad's health I just brushed it aside, not knowing the continued damage it does to my arm and wrist. Hope you're well Al need to check in with you soon my friend!


    Thanks,
    Kenny

    New pneumatic bag clipping machine installed and in action. It now provides a smooth and secure closure on bags every time.

    It also has an option to trim excess bag tail from bags, very convenient.

    Wow Kenny, that's a beauty!

    As an occasional shipper, I once asked Kenny how he does it. He nicely pointed out that the pros use equipment the hobbyist wouldn't consider

    Yes, more or less. I asked what you used to crimp your bags and you mentioned your expensive tool.

    Got it Steve, and that old manual clipper is no longer "expensive" as compared to this pneumatic one! Ouch! LOL
