I don't have one anymore.
I do wander in and out of machine shops often enough though.

What "over-all width" and material thickness capacity range were you interested in?
Tomorrow I will be visiting a few machine shops and a machinery rigger, so I will put some feelers out there for you.
Many older finger brakes will be in "less than perfect" shape, so be prepared to spend more for a nice wide, accurate, HD brake in perfect shape.

With fabricating shops closing all over the USA, you should be able to score exactly what you need.

I was looking for 2 or 3' , maybe 18 gauge is all I need. Cost is more an issue than condition.

I can get a regular pan brake for $200 that would do most of what I need.

Last night the HF bead roller came on sale for $130. If they have one in stock I am going to get it.

thanks
