Default Has anybody ever worked with brake/shear combo?


I need to get a slitter or a shear and also a new(used) 16ga brake.

I came across this maybe 2yrs ago, has anybody ever seen one upclose?
It looks like a good idea to save space.I'd use it only 2-3 H a day max.One person shop, manufacturing flashings mostly,valley,dripedge. 10' runs.


What do you think about this brake/cutter combo?

Looks like a reinforced siding brake. The motorized brake would be safer using a foot pedal. Can't imagine the strain cutting steel even at 24 gauge thickness. But the price isn't much more than many newer siding brakes.
