I recently bought this Just-Bend Stopper Kit for my Van Mark Mark II TrimMaster brake, and just like their Measuring Gauge kit, this pair of adjustable stoppers will save you time and make bending and cutting metal more enjoyable, especially for repetitive bends and cuts. I've had this kit for more than a few months and I can't imagine using my brake without them now that I've used them for a while and see how much time and trouble they save. No more pulling out the tape rule and pencil to measure and mark every piece of metal that you're going to bend or cut. Just set your stoppers at the depth you want, make your bends/cuts, readjust for the next depth, bend/cut, rinse and repeat. They are truly worth their weight in gold if you're a contractor who owns and uses a metal brake often.
Let me talk a little bit about their construction - they are very well made made of a combination of steel and high-quality anodized aluminum. The thumbscrews are made of what feels and appears to be high-quality metal and NOT some cheap flimsy plastic. They will, without a doubt, hold up to years of daily use.
This kit will literally pay for itself on a single job. Whether it's cutting trim coil, bending Z flashing for deck ledgers, apron flashing, base flashing for horizontal facade transitions, etc. these stoppers will be your best friend and make the process of making these types of bends/cuts 100 times quicker and easier. Don't hesitate if you're on the fence about buying this kit. Get it ... you won't regret it!
BTW, I bought the Just-Bend Measuring Gauge kit at the same time that I made this purchase, and I highly recommend it also as it allows you to make quick, one-off bends/cuts where you still don't want to fool with the hassle of measuring and marking your metal. Both of these kits combined will increase your productivity and make you more money. They really are a no-brainer if you're having to bend metal often.
