18" Mighty Mini Bender Brake

18" Mighty Mini Bender Brake

Product Review (submitted on September 23, 2011):

This does exactly what it says, well in the catalog. On this website it says up to 18 gauge steel, in the catalog it says up to 20ga.

I tried 20ga and it worked fine, 18 gauge made the handles start to bend no matter how you held them or how easily you pulled. I figured the person with the broken handles had put something way to thick in. I can tell now that if I had tried to complete a 90 degree bend on 18 gauge steel, my handles would have snapped too.

The picture shows the brake and the metal being along with 2 clamps, which you will need to buy to hold the metal down before bending. I'd have paid $10 more just to save a trip back to town to buy 2 C clamps.
