18in Mini Bender Brake is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the $$ 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn"t bend 20 gauge steel I purchased this item along with the sheet metal kit. The bender would not bend the 20 gauge steel in the sheet metal kit. The length I was trying to bend was only 11 inches not the full 18 inches which the description states it can bend. The bender would bow greatly as I tried to bend the metal. The handles would bend and I was worried that the welds would fail. Don't waste your time and money on this item. I gave the price and value 1 star because it didn't work due to poor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very compact and affordable bender. I also purchased a similar bender ,but instead of using clamps I drilled 2 holes on each end, close to the edge, inserted 2 bolts with 4 washers and 2 wingnuts for easy removal .In between the steel halves I use a washer to make up the sheetmetal thickness.If I need to bend a thicker metal, I remove the bolts, add washers and tighten up the bolts.Insert metal many times without clamping your metal each time.
