My kid got one 10' break and I think he wants to get rid of it. I will ask him when he gets home from work, but I'm out in Jersey. The ride isn't so bad because I have a niece in Maryland and I visit her from time to time so it's about 2:30 hr drive give or take.
If you interested drop me a message here with your email and I will get back to you.
As the break goes it's in pretty good shape it needs a little cleaning.

Re: Metal Brake


I buy a lot of tools from the home depot rental yard. The first day of the month they turn over the tools. Took me six months of checking but I got a nice 10' brake for $550. Used it to build my last house then sold it for $1000.

Craigslist has them as well.

Re: Metal Brake


There's a video on YouTube that shows you how to make you're own brake. It's not too shabby either considering the price of brakes.

While that might be ok for a DIY deal, not something would want to use on a daily as a professional . Like any good tool it will make you money thus worth the cost most of the time.
