Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very capable brake This is a capable electromagnetic brake. The open top allows for great capabilities for folding a boxed in section. We have made closed rectangle, octagon and hexagon pieces without the interference a traditional brake would give. We have folded full width 16 gauge mild steel with no issue. The ability to bend a radius around a piece of steel pipe is a cool feature. Compared to the Baileigh, this one doesn't need a buck transformer to drop the 240v residential AC to 220v, which is a savings. Additionally, there was no wait (backorder) to get this one and it is cheaper than the Baileigh. Unfortunately, they are all made in China so we are hoping the unit will give years of trouble free service. The only negative is that the scale is not correct. It does bend close to a 90 degree as indicated, but a 45 degree bend needs the stop set at 35 as indicated on the scale. Not a major problem, just need to do some test bends on scrap material to find the right setting. That's a good idea anyway as the amount of spring back will vary with material, thickness and width.

Questions & Answers

I need to bend brass flat sheets with a notch cut where the bend is to occur. What is the maximum thickness of brass this machine can bend?

Asked by: jasonct27
We do not recommend bending anything thicker than 16 gauge.

How does this unit compare to the roper/whitnen magnabend and the baileigh magnetic benders? Also since this is in close out, will replacement parts be available?

Asked by: Luke
This is directly comparable to Baileigh's 240V 48" electro brake. I only see a 120V Roper Whitney 48" model so this is significantly stronger than that. This product is not in closeout, we fully intend to continue selling this. We do have replacement parts available and have no problem backing our 1 year warranty.

What is the weight of the heaviest one solid piece component, as delivered? I'm looking to see what I would need to do to transport this unit from the delivery truck to the house.

Asked by: PeterD
The main body of the unit is by far the heaviest piece - it has the electro magnet and base for bending. I would guess it weighs at least 200 lbs. It could be moved with a hand truck.

Will this work with a 1-Phase Buck/Boost Step-Up Transformer - 208V Primary - 240V Secondary - 23.4Amps - 50/60Hz or do I need more current Buck and Boost Transformer - 208V Primary - 240V Secondary - 46.8 Amps on Secondary - 50/60Hz?

Asked by: Mark
This will work with a 23.4 amp buck boost transformer.

Just got my unit yesterday after waiting 4 months. Got it set up today and started building a small aluminum box. On the 10th and final bend I heard a pop and the magnets are stopped working. Not a breaker. Let sit for hours, no luck. Please advise

How small of a channel can it make? I need to be able to make pretty tight channels and need to know the smallest it will go.

Asked by: Benjamindh89
0.635" is the smallest bar, so that would be the size channel.
