TENNSMlTH's heavy-duty universal hand brake is an economical
tool for a wide range of sheet metal bending and forming operations. The
Model HBU48-12 handles 48 inche x 12-gauge and lighter materials. This
brake is ideal for both box and pan and straight bending in hot and cold rolled
plate, stainless steel, aluminum and heavy plastic. Ample clamping and nose
bar adjustments allow for the bend radius necessary for your application.
Welded steel plate construction and heavy truss rods and braces provide strength
and rigidity. Other adjustment features include: leveling screws and lock
nuts on the pedestals; jack screws and tension bolts on the apron; truss rods
on the apron, base, and upper leaf; and fully adjustable counter balances
to facilitate the bending process. This brake features a removable apron insert
for 1/4-inch bends in lighter material. The upper leaf adjustment screws feature
thrust bearings to prevent upper leaf creep. Ductile steel clamp handles,
heavy counterweights and an apron stop rod add to the brake's ease of operation.
The removable fingers are case hardened for long service.
Tennsmith's heavy-duty universal hand brake is a productive addition to any shop doing prototype or design work, fabrication or short run production in heavier materials.
