Mini-Brake: Portable


Make big or small fabrications on the job with this lightweight and portable tool! The versatile Mini-Brake produces bends up to 135 degrees in sheet metals, including aluminum, copper and 22-gauge galvanized steel. The brake’s compact size can accommodate sheet metal stock up to 4-feet wide, in any length, because there is no fixed throat depth to contend with.

Use the Mini Brake anywhere on the job site, even on a truck tailgate, for a variety of fabricating tasks from large HVAC transitions to narrow roof flashing to structures as small as a 4-inch square. Strengthening ribs on the brake’s anvil and apron assure consistent bends. A safety-conscious, cam-over style clamping mechanism, similar to much larger shop-floor brakes, keeps the anvil secure in any position. Optional legs are available separately.

Easy, portable, fits the bill
If you can manage a tape measure and a t square, this brake is great for fabbing in the field.

It’s great to have a brake I can take on the job
Use this all the time. As an HVAC contractor, it's great to have a brake I can take on the job for on the spot fittings. I would recommend this to others for sure.

Rob Balo

Malco MB48A IS JUST THE TOOL
This tool is so handy. My bending jobs turned out perfect. I used it to bend alum trim around my new windows.

Handy tool
I bend aluminum trim coil to flash chimneys and do small roofing trim detail. Keep in mind that this brake works differently from large aluminum brake. For example, you can't bend a piece longer than 48" because the sides of this brake are in the way. i.e. you can't bend half and then another half of the same longer piece. It won't fit.

Great Tool!
This portable break works great in the field. I wasn't sure how it would do beening that I've only used 8' heavy duty breaks in a shop up to this point. Does what needs to be done with no problems or issues. A+

Nice 4 foot brake
I bought this to do some roofing work at home.I used it to bend all my flashing and to make aluminum trim for around my windows it worked well and makes straight bends.I found it to be a good low cost brake.
