Chicago 8' Brake models

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a source to help me identify the sheet metal capacity of my recently acquired Chicago Brake.  It's an oldie, and I can't seem to dig up anything on line.  I'd love to be able to brake 16 gauge.

Welcome aboard Adair, glad to have you. If you'll put your general location in the header one of the guys here who knows how to operate that thing may be within visiting distance.


That'll brake 16ga. Just don't force it, if it stalls don't put put a cheater on it. Go ahead and put your legs into it, it's tougher than human muscles.


Frosty The Lucky.
