Must Have Metal Fab: Versa-Bend Sheet Metal Brake - Eastwood

In this video we demonstrate what makes the Versa-Bend Sheet Metal Brake an irreplaceable tool in anyone's garage

  • Well Made, Not a Heavy Weight Unit
    Brake was effectively packaged and easy to assemble. Beyond assembly, little instruction was provided with the unit, but use is simple so not a lot needed. Tried 20 gauge bends, worked like a charm. Tried 18 gauge, 6" wide bend, finished product was on target but I started feeling the stress on the unit. I believe their recommendation to stay below 12" wide 18 gauge bends is on target. The problem is not the bending table, but the top clamp. It would need extra gussetting, bracing to handle wider 18" gauge bends or heavier material. But if you need to do that kind of work, then you really need a floor brake. This will be an often used tool in my shop, I will need to retire my 6" vice and hammer, Ha.
  • Good value for useful tool
    We've used this tool around the shop for small fabrication jobs, and it works great. Bends are tight when used within the tools specified range, and for the money you can't really do much better.
  • Solid tool, works well
    I've now used the tool several times on a project. It's proven to be well built and reliabl
  • Great function, easy use.
    Working well for small bending work. Functions flawlessly for its size.
  • Great for the money
    Purchased this to replace a cheaper one from a discount store which was horrid quality. Typical Eastwood, this is a little more money but much more value. The tool worked very well for what it is. Don't expect to bend thick steel, its just not heavy enough for that. But for its intended purpose its a very solid buy.
  • easy to use
    the product is great for what it was made for,Thanks
  • It is what i need for the money.
    I wish you had included some instruction on how to move the black adjustment handles before bent one on my first try with the machine .
    I finally figured out that you push down on the screw head and pull up. This moves the black handle out of the way to make a complete bend.
    Of course i bent one of the black adjustment handles on my first bend.
    Now i have one bent black adjustment handle and one good one
    I watched all your you tube video, I never saw anyone show how to make adjustment to the black handles when you install the sheet metal for bending.
    To me it one of the most important part of the breaking metal on the Versa-Bend.
    I have never worked with metal. I did not except a high dollar machine for 150.00 It works good for the money.
  • product seems good
    I only recently used it to make a small bracket for my shop. It worked as expected and i was pleased with the outcome. My only regret is it would be even more handy if it could accommodate material at least 24in long. Needed to rebuild my snowshovel edge and it wasn't quite long enough to work out. Oh well, i just had to be resourceful!
  • A pretty good tool for average auto sheet metal wo
    It forms good repeatable bends, and is quick and easy to set. The 20" size is just about right for my needs and the build quality is sufficient to eliminate flexing.
  • AS expected
    A low tech unit but performs as expected for the money, sufficient for most home shop work.
  • Good product for the cost
    I looked around on the Internet for a inexpensive brake to do some small sheet metal work. Some of the cheap models used c clamps to hold the work down. But for another $40-50 the Eastwood has built in clamps. So for lite sheet metal work it's a good price. Another feature is that it can be portable using a vice.
