Customer 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

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.

Can it bend smaller pieces of 14 gauge if not trying to bend full width?

Asked by: Caschatzle
Although the Eastwood 48" Electro-Brake(32601) may be able to apply enough clamping force to hold 14 gauge mild steel it is only recommended to bend up to 16 gauge mild steel or damage may result.

Will this unit work with 208v single phase?

Asked by: Alex
It is recommended to operate this unit with Standard Single Phase 220/240volt AC current at 60hz on a grounded circuit with a minimum 20 amp breaker. A dedicated circuit is preferred. 208volt Single phase is not a recommended current for this unit..

The listing says 240V but the instruction manual says 220V. What is the correct voltage and +/- percent to be within. Need to determine if a buck transformer is required prior to ordering.

Asked by: Jadams
You can use either a 220volt or 240volt. The unit will clamp and function correctly on either voltage.

Does this one suffer from the same problem the baileigh version does?   Where is has to to be 220v, not 240 ( standard US dual leg power). They pretty much require a boost/buck transformer else they say you will fry the magnet and void the warranty. 

Asked by: PlaneCrazey
This unit requires standard single phase 240 volts.
