G0542 48" Pan & Box Brake 12 Gauge

The best value in Pan & Box Brakes.

The G0542 48" Pan & Box Brake is perfect for some heavy-duty box bending. It will easily set an angle in 12-gauge mild steel up to 135°.

Setting the adjustable stop collar allows you to make repeatable bends at an exact angle. This is especially useful when making stackable pans.

The adjustable brake handle is counterweighted to add leverage to ease the effort needed to bend thicker workpieces.

The G0542 comes with eight removable fingers for box forming and other special bending operations. The fingers can be used individually or all at once.

This Pan & Box Brake is built to last a lifetime. Constructed from steel, it weighs in at 1,254 pounds.

Like all Grizzly pan and box brakes, the G0542 comes with a 1-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects.

The G0542 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy to read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your pan and box brake.

The Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the pan and box brake are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

    For the money your not going find a better bender , the only thing I can be critical on it should come with better assembly instructions other than that I would recommend it to anyone.

    Great product 01/28/2017 1:09:52 AM

    This is a very heavy, well built product. I have made several boxes with this and it works great. You can make repeatable bends using the stop which comes in handy if making stackable pans.

    The Pan and Box brake works just fine for what we need.
    The only issue was getting it here. It took three weeks to make a 5 hour trip. It appears that UPS freight had it sitting in Portland for more than two weeks and kept forgetting to get in on a truck to come east.

    Perfect for our shop 01/26/2017 1:50:39 PM

    For the most part, this a great little Brake..the only issues I had were there were fasteners missing and none of the tension rod nuts were tightened..but other than that and great Brake for the money. Perfect for our shop and the projects we will use it for.
