TENNSMITH’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 can handle 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 tensioner 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.
