    "Could you bend up a 1/2 inch flange at 90 deg and then an inch further in bend another 90 degrees. Like you would see at the front edge of a countertop."

    Definitly not stainless.

    Do you think you could really bend 48" of 16 ga.?

    My brake is ENCO. Normally sells for $560 but is on sale now for $499. I don't know about 16 ga the full length. I doubt it but it also depends on what the material is. Copper, aluminum........probably. Steel....not sure. This brake can do 3" deep.

    Well I'm Not sure that 200.00 was a great deal

    But I got my eye on a 6' break rite now setting in a salvage yard that looks in good condition that they haven’t used in a few years, talked to one of the workers there about it but have to wait on the owner to get back after the new year before I can find out if it's for sale and what he will want for it.

    The one I picked up today will do the little stuff I want to do with it easily enough mainly 26 Ga. Now to find some copper sheets but that’s after I get this thing all figured out

    Now I just got to get it off the truck some time tomorrow and in to the shop and back on its stand that’s the biggest challenge for now.

    $200 bucks for a 42" ..........great! I have a 30" and I like it for what it is. I got it at tractor supply co. It has two handles which most come with only one.
    I assume it's a finger brake.
