HM Machinery 1300H Straight Brake


The HM Machinery 1300H is a simple and easy to operate straight brake. Light weight, but robustly constructed, this manual machine is built for consistently folding thin sheet metal up to 20 gauge. Precision ground tooling on the single piece nose bar, combined with cross-driven clamping and a repeat angle stop, make the 1300H capable of consistent, repeatable, and accurate bends.

The 1300H’s high clamping beam is ideally suited for situations where tall channels or narrow profiles need to be fabricated.

The 1300H straight brake comes with floor mounting legs as standard, but can also be bench-mounted for mobile applications.
