Tennsmith bending brakes are built for long service and accurate bending. Welded steel plate construction and heavy truss rods and braces provide strength and durability. With much more substantial steel side plates than other domestically made uint, these brakes have the rigidity required for upper beam adjustment without the use of wrenches. Equipped with thrust bearings, the upper leaf adjustment screws permit quick, accurate alignment for different material thicknesses or radii.

Tennsmith® Floor Model Hand Brakes are available as either STRAIGHT or BOX & PAN models. Straight brakes consists of a single bending bar extending over the entire span of the brake. Box & Pan brakes have a series of "fingers", which are short bending bars that can be positioned along the span of the brake to produce the cutouts necessary when forming a sheet into box or a pan.
