Low Cost Sheet Metal Brake

This brake was originally designed in 1967 when Shop Supply House started business. It was designed for use in the industrial arts school shops in high schools for the students to make projects. It also found it's way into industry, with the manual trades and the do-it-yourselfers.

It will bend 24" of 16 gauge cold rolled sheet steel. Reverse bends to 12 degrees. As it is delivered it is a straight bending brake. You can cut fingers in the top bar with a hack saw to make it a finger brake or make fingers from hardwood. The bar or fingers are clamped from the rear with c-clamps (not supplied). There are holes to oil the bronze bearings. The brakes weights 31 lbs. with a shipping weight of 36 lbs. Also includes a 12" bar as shown.
