This sheet metal brake can bend boxes or pans to almost any depth since it doesn’t rely on conventional finger depths.


  • Runs on 220-volt single-phase power and will work at virtually any site.
  • 48” (4-foot) length with a maximum capacity of 16 gauge mild steel.
  • The breakthrough open-ended design allows you to create enclosed ducts and shapes impossible to make with a traditional box and pan brake.
  • 6-ton magnetic power is consistent across the entire beam, allowing for crisp bends even in the middle of the brake.
  • Scaled stroke angle control lets you deliver repeatable bends time after time.
  • You can set up the mild steel clamping bar with straight bars (of various widths if you had very tight boxes to make) for straight bends or segmented clamping bars for box and pan applications.
  • Blade gap adjustment on the clamping bars lets you work with sheet metal of different thicknesses.
  • You can remove the bottom leaf's bending extension for the tightest bend dimension between bends of .625”.
  • Comes with product supports and adjustable back gauges for production runs.
  • Baileigh covers this box brake with a 1-year parts warranty as well as lifetime technical support by phone.
  • Typically kept in stock for quick shipments.


Easy, hands-free operation:


  • Put a piece of material between the clamping bar to the depth required.
  • Engage the powerful magnet in the bending bed with push button control.
  • Hit the foot pedal that softly clamps the material. This foot control keeps your fingers safely out of the machine and you to reposition the material.
  • Lift the the bottom bending leaf to complete the bend.


Recommended for:


  • HVAC shops, industrial art shops, and general sheet metal fabrication shops.
  • Making enclosed boxes, triangles, alternate bends on varying planes, and round items such as scrolling applications.
  • Bending a variety of materials, including sheets of mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, coated materials, heated plastics, and more.
To achieve proper performance and prevent damage to the machine, the power supplied must be 220VAC +/-5% (209VAC to 231VAC).  Failure to comply will damage the machine and void the warranty.  Questions on this please call Baileigh Industrial 920-684-4990 before purchasing.

Stories & Testimonials

“Awesome Machine”

Philip at the House of Chop pushes his BB-4816M brake to the limit and beyond. As he wrote on Instagram, “‘What will it bend? What’s the max?’ has to be the most frequently asked question when people see this machine. Baileigh rates it at 16ga but in this quick clip from my series utilizing the brake it’s easily bending 1/8”. I was quite impressed and I’m sure I could still get a bit more out of it. It’s an awesome machine that really is only held back by the [user’s] imagination.”

Awesome Tool

The BB-4816M does things that normal sheet metal brakes can't. Check out my video for an example of how.

Strange bends on a Baileigh Magnetic Brake

Some of you may remember that I bought a Baileigh Magnetic brake a while back. I have used it a bunch, but for the most part most of the bending could have been done on a traditional Box/Pan brake (really not very interesting). In the interest of showing the versatility of the Mag Brake I did a tutorial of building a radiator fan shroud and how I used the Mag Brake for bending radiused corners around round bar instead of square corners like a traditional Box/Pan, and this is easy on the Mag brake. Well I just completed another customer project that wouldn't have been possible on a traditional Box/Pan and I thought I'd share it with you.

My customer has a restored WWII Bomber airplane (don't bother asking the model of bomber as I can't remember but I will ask again next time we talk) and he is fitting some empty 1000 lb Bombs to the bomb bay that have been converted to store extra fuel and engine oil. The bomb bodies that he has are sans fins and he needed some new fins cut out and bent up. So this it the process. I hope it shows you one more of the cool things that can be done with a magnetic brake.

I highly recommend this brake!

Two years ago I purchased the magnetic brake from Baileigh. It's hands down the most important and versatile sheet metal tool CAL Automotive Creations uses! The brake had a hand in forming most of the panels on our 2013 Detroit Ridler winning '40 Ford "Checkered Past". The possibilities are endless with this tool. I highly recommend this brake! It's just one of the Baileigh tools that we use daily that I can't live without.

Very Nice Machine

Just got my brake last week and I am very impressed with the build quality. All of the parts arrived well packed and in perfect condition. I have tried it on several different kinds and gauges of metals and it absolutely does everything as promised. I am able to form shapes now that I never could before and this gives me an advantage over my competition.
