I have noticed Baileigh has not replied to this post in 3 years, are their Magnabrakes any good any more??
As I bought an Eastwood Version of the Magnabrake and they have sent me 3 of the biggest piles of SHIT , none of the 3 they have sent me work properly!!!!
I have been messing with Eastwood for 3 months now trying to get one thats works!
The first one had faulty wiring and when I plugged it in it sparked everywhere and then they tried to get me to fix it by email, and I refused as I am NOT an electronics guy, after 6 weeks of emails they sent me another one , only to find this one didnt work either, it would clamp down on the light clamp position with a piece of sheet metal in it, but when I flipped switch to FULL clamping power it would NOT clamp down on any gauge sheet metal , the clamping bar would pop right UP , no matter what button or foot control you hit!
the 3rd pile of crap they sent will not clamp down on any setting or any gauge sheet metal , and it HUMS like hell making you not want to touch any metal surface or handle.
I am sending the 3rd one back too, but it will take up to 72 hours before I get my refund and feel like they should reimburse me for the 4 full days I had to take off work to sit and wait on this POS product for time wasted waiting on them to send a new one to me and to pick the crap ones up!
All I have to say is I wouldn't buy ANYTHING form EASTWOOD Company ever again as they are worthless in customer service!!!
So I am asking is the Beileigh any better or is it made by the same manufacturer, because if it is I am staying clear of this product!!!
Or is the Roper-Whitney Magnabend a better product???
