Bench top bending brake


#1

DOes anyone know of a source for a small, 12" capacity bending brake that I can attach to a bench/work table. Alternatively, does someone have plans for such an item.

Thanks.

I haven’t used one, and can’t offer any opinion on it, but you might look at the Shop Fox M1052. It’s available on Amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/Shop-Fox-M1052-Machine-12-Inch/dp/B005BPWP4S

Breaks are pretty simple. Harbor freight has an 18" break that could be cut down.Depending on the size of work roofers use small breaks and I own a 6" hand break. Look for a tin knocker, a specialist in HAVC duct work.

Good luck

What about “Potter Tools”? He seems to have lots of great tools which are made exceptionally well.

If you’ve got a few minutes, this is worth looking at. Very easy and very functional.

Great stuff! I love instructables.

I admire his craftsmanship using rudimentary tools most homeowners have. Put this on my todo list.

Hi,
I’m posting some pix of several available,
The Bailaigh is similar to a german one I’ve had for 20 + years, I Paid a lot more than the 281.00 they’re asking.
I also have a 4’ version of the shop fox (under a different brand, Very good.
The grizzly is a deal, but find out if there are individual fingers available. The center pull will make life much easier.
Best,
Jim
