Grizzly T32716 - 8" Benchtop Metal Shear/Brake
T32716 8" Benchtop Metal Shear/Brake
A great benchtop tool for any shop bending and cutting sheet metal.
The medium-duty T32716 8" Benchtop Metal Shear/Brake is designed to both bend and shear sheet metal with one compact tool.
It will easily and quickly form and cut sheet metal up to 20-gauge.
The T32716 comes with five fingers of various lengths: 3/8", 9/16", 13/16", 19/16", and 8".
These sizes can be used to perform a variety of bending operations, including pan and box and radius bending.
Once you have planned your bend, remove any installed fingers and replace them with the finger (or fingers) needed for that bend.
The bending prism is what the fingers press a workpiece up against to achieve a bend. This prism can be turned over to reveal a shallower V-groove with a smaller bending radius on the other side.
In addition to bending metal, this machine also consists of a set of reversible knives that shear up to 20-gauge full width mild steel.
A movable lower knife passes next to the fixed upper knife, creating a shearing action. For repetitive cuts at the same dimensions, the shear stop can be used.
Like all Grizzly brakes, the T32716 comes with a 1-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects.
The T32716 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.
The Grizzly Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based.
Parts for the brake may be available online and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
