Mini-Brake: "Pan Style"

0 of 5 stars


The MB48B “Pan Style” Mini-Brake is designed to fabricate drip pans and register boxes, as well as complex corners for flashing and fascia, on the job. At just under 100 pounds (45 kg), it is carried comfortably by two people, or quickly separated into anvil and table components for one-person transport. The MB48B operates on a workbench, tailgate, or optional legs to produce 135° bends in 22-gauge (0.86 mm) galvanized steel at a maximum 48 inch (1.2 m) width. A 5/16-inch (7.9 mm) plate-steel table apron and anvil frame, with adjustable set-back and strengthening ribs, ensures a uniform bend. Cam-over-center clamps keep the anvil secure in any position for safe operation. For making pans and boxes, the full anvil is comprised of 16 movable, plate-steel fingers: Five 2-inch (50.8 mm); Six 3-inch (76.2 mm); and Five 4-inch (101.6 mm) fingers to create a maximum 48-inch (1.2 m) bending width. Minimum bending width is limited to the 2-inch (50.8 mm) finger width. Anvil clearance allows a range of flange-height dimensions from 1/2 to 3-inches (12.7-76.2 mm). No fixed throat depth also makes the MB48B ideal for fabricating large ductwork, flashing and fascia components on the job.
