George -- yes, the brake-shear does function as a brake....the bending function is done at the bottom of the tool.  Of course that's limited in width to the same 8 inch constraint.  I've used it a couple of times and it works fine.  If you only want a bending brake there are cheaper (and perhaps better) alternatives.  Check MicroMark's web site as I think they sell one....I believe Northern Tools has one as well.  Those tools have a much wider bending area than the brake-shear does.

Looking at that item on their website, it is a dual-purpose tool.Does it work well as a bending brake too? I've been consideringbuying a bending brake, this might be the way to go.George, ae5ci--- In [url=mailto:spectrumanalyzer%40yahoogroups.com t=_blank]spectrumanalyzer@ yahoogroups. com[/url], Dino Papas wrote:>> For smaller pieces of PCB I finally bit the bullet and bought a shear- > brake from MicroMark... .nice straight clean cut with no fuss.
