Northern Industrial Pan and Brake Box - 48in. Width
great metal brake
I bought this brake to do aluminum work on my race car. this thing works great. The fingers are easy to remove and makes fabricating boxes a breeze. My dad also has one that he uses for HVAC duct. this break is well worth the money. Make sure you have some help when you pick it up as it weighs around 400 lbs.

Excellent economical sheet metal brake. Step flashing, sidewall flashing, pans and any light metal bending is easy with this unit. Adjustable for different gauges as well as initial set-up. It's kinda portable too.

Awesome Metal Brake
I bought this brake a few months ago, and I must say that for a manual brake, it is the best investment that I have made in a long time. I have dealt with Northern Tool + Equipment, for a number of years, and I have never been disappointed with their products, or services. The People are great and very knowledgeable about the products, and if they are not sure they will find someone that does. The brake works great, and is very easy to use and set up for different sizes of materials that need to be fashioned. I highly recommend this product to anyone. for Business, or the average home owner. I use mine everyday, and have not had any issues. I give this product, and Northern Tool + Equipment 7 stars for for being there for me. Thanks Northern, you are the best.

Great brake for the price. Perfect for my small shop. Had it delivered to my local store for pickup. Does a great job for small sections of duct, transitions, and boxes.

Northern Industrial Pan & Brake Box — 48in. Width
As a home builder and remodeler I can say this is the best pan and brake box I have ever used. Simple, strong and accurate. After putting only three hundred pounds of trimming copper through it I can already highly recommend it to any beginner or seasoned professional. You can spend hundreds more but the work product won't be any better.

Great box and pan brake
I purchased this through local store and had delivered. The entire purchase went very smooth. I bought to make fuel tanks and misc. items for my street rod hot shop. It performs wonderfully. I would recommend it for anyone wanting a break to perform any duty in your shop. Easy to mount legs or on a table top shop bench.

The first pan break I bought popped a weld as soon as I used it ! Took it back to the store and it was replaced with their apologies. I then took it right over to a great welder that ground out all of the bad welds and rewelded and reinforced all the spots that would see stress. I have had no problems since and would recommend buying it on sale and modifying it as I did. With the cost of the reweld it was still less than list and works fantastic!

am very satisfied with this brake. exactly what was described. it is very comparable to Tennsmith, or Tin Knocker brands in workmanship, usability, and quality at about 2/3 the overall price.
