    Another question about this brake: Can the 48" Baileigh bend a full 48" length of 16ga mild steel, straight and crisp?

    I am interested in one...

    The coils generate 6 tons of downward force

    I use mine every day in my personal shop. Mostly for radius bending.

    One more question! When bending a full 48" piece of 16 gage, I imagine at least two people must be involved? I don't see big counterweights like a normal brake uses, so I bet it takes serious pulling power to bend full width?

    It honestly depends on the guy running the machine. I'm a big guy and can do it, but on a regular basis it would kill my back. So, yes without the counter weights, a smaller guy would struggle full width
