Was wondering what kind of brake you all use? Looking at a 4' finger brake by Baileigh Industrial products, price seems pretty good. Been using a antique brake of a friend for along time, it's a 6'er and not a finger brake.will be used for pleniums mostly and safety pans, maybe don't need fingers? havent so far but they look pretty cool! :yes:

just wanted to hear your comments,
thanks :thumbsup:

i use a 4' "tennsmith" finger brake and a 4' "tin knocker" finger brake. i had a nice 8' tennsmith at my last job, they are work fine for us. i use them to teach students sheetmetal fab and they beat the piss outta them. but they hold their own, of course a few adjustments now and again!

I think Tennsmith is the most popular around here. If you are buying one it makes sense to buy a finger brake because of the added versatility over a standard brake for a slight difference in cost.

I have a 4' Tennsmith finger brake with the heavy duty shelved stand that I am willing to sell for a decent offer to someone who is willing to come to Eastern Pennsyltucky to pick it up.

It is the last remnant of my being in the contracting business and my wife gets tired of my having it taking up space:sad:
