TENNSMITH’s bench-mounted hand brakes provide an economical means of performing a wide range of sheet metal bending and forming operations. These brakes are of all-steel welded construction, readily adjustable and utilize bronze bearings at pivot points.
Model HBU48-16 is a heavy-duty bench brake suitable for box and pan or straight bending in up to 16-gauge mild steel. The brake features a removable apron angle and apron insert permitting 1/4-inch reverse bends in lighter materials. The upper leaf and nose bar has a wide range of adjustment for radius bending. Standard equipment includes an apron stop rod for repeat bends, extension handles and a counterweight.
Model HBS48-16 is identical in features and capacity to the HBU48-16 but is intended solely for straight bending. Like our larger hand brakes, the HBS48-16 features a replaceable nose bar.
Models U48-22 and S48-22 are lighter capacity versions of the four-foot bench brake, which offer economical alternatives in working 22-gauge and lighter materials. Also, their lighter weights make these models better suited for transporting to remote job sites.
