I'm in the market for a brake. I was considering the Harbor Freight brake, but this looks like a better brake for not much more. I will be using it for making flashing for package units, return boxes for furnaces/AHU's and drain pans. Your opinions/advice please.
i have some harbor freight tools i live 3 blocks from one, its a junk brake don't do it, you will regret it, only thing that is good, try it, and take it back and say it sucks, you will get all your money back. (don't waste your time is my recommendation)
I ended up getting the harbor freight brake. Not the greatest for sure, but no problem making sharp bends on 26 ga metal for the full width. It was on sale and they also let me use a 20% off coupon. Ended up being less than $200 out the door. It is light enough to take to a job if needed. It will get me by until the right deal on someting better comes along.
