Needs advice on sheet metal brake and shear

Post  747JetMech on January 28th 2015, 2:54 pm

Guys

Trying to decide what kind and size brake and shear to buy.
Pan - Box or straight up brake.
Do you guys ever have a need for something over 4 ft?

Thx

I'd go at least 4' box pan brake, should cover anything you need to do

I have a 4' box pan brake and it gives you more versatility than a straight one. More than anything I wish I had a Press Brake!
