Aluminum Brake


I have a project I'm bidding on and it requires 26 gauge aluminum coping. I believe I can't bend this with a standard brake. I see some 4ft brakes online. Is there 8-10ft portable brake available to bend this out in the field?

Yes, my Tapco Black Max will ,but probably more then you want to spend for one job. Think they are around 3k right now plus like 350 for the slitter, which pretty much need. I bend 26 ga roofing metal in mine.

Re: Aluminum Brake


Try the alums-brake we have had one as our mobile brake for years and it’s been very reliable.

Re: Aluminum Brake


Very light gauge steel. Maybe 29 or 31 gauge tops.
