Tapco Tools Solves Roofing Trim HeadachesNovember 10th, 2023
Tapco Tools® brakes are widely recognized for helping contractors create high-quality custom exterior siding trim. But did you know that the versatility and precision of the Max-I-Mum® XL and MX Series® brake systems are also ideal equipment for roofing trim and flashing fabrication needs?
Tapco Tools brakes are efficient, durable, and portable, and they’re engineered to make it easy to accurately craft the ideal roofing trim solution for every job.
The Max-I-Mum XL System (pictured above) combines the Max-I-Mum II brake with a MAX Snap Stand and MAX Cut-off for a powerful-yet-portable commercial-grade braking system. The system weighs as little as 133 pounds but can bend all vinyl; aluminum up to .040, galvanized steel up to 24 gauge, painted galvanized steel up to 26 gauge, soft and annealed copper up to 32 ounce, and stainless steel 1/2 hard up to 24 gauge.
Less portable but no less robust, the MX Series provides heavy-duty bending without sacrificing precision. It’s stable, tough, and has double-walled pivot arms for added strength. The MX can bend all vinyl, galvanized steel up to 22 gauge, painted galvanized steel up to 24 gauge, CR sheet and coil steel up to 22 gauge, soft and annealed copper up to 32 ounce, and stainless steel 1/2 hard up to 24 gauge.
