From the POWERslot hinge design, to the new hollow-core extrusions, Mark II TrimMaster answers the demand for quality and long service life. Discover the time and money saving features designed into every Van Mark product for yourself.

  • POWERslot -New technology adds more bending power without sacrificing capacities.
  • Quick Hemming - Easily makes 180 degree over bends
  • Built-In-Tape Rule- Standard/Metric scale takes the guess work out of your bending routine.
  • Large Working Pocket- For complex custom bends without brake interference.
  • Vinyl Strips-Does not mar metal finishes while providing cushioned contact during bends.
  • Still Adjustable - You may never have to adjust your brake, but if you want to, that option is up to you!
  • Full Loop Handle - Ergonomic and Easy to grab, ensures even bending. Detaches quickly for transport.

Commercial Model - The Mark II TrimMaster Commercial brake has additional C castings to handle medium grade metals with ease. Like the Contractor, the Commercial model provides all the bending power needed without sacrificing one of the most important features in a job site brake, portability!

 

Note: accessories may be incompatible with older Van-Mark products.
Note : The difference between the Contractor & Commercial Grade Van Mark Brakes is that the Commercial Brakes have more C Brackets therefore making the Commercial Models a more Heavy Duty unit for extreme work environments

  1. Arcuate Hinge Design/Thick Hollow-Core Extrusions The Mark II TrimMaster®, featuring POWERslot technology, takes more of your bending energy from the hinge axis and re-directs it to the bend . To keep your brake bending true for many years to come, thicker hollow-core extrusions have been added.
  2. Handle Plugs Do Not Hit Ladder Rack Handles detach quickly for transport while handle plugs do not hit ladder rack when loading.
  3. Non-Marring Vinyl Strips The Mark II TrimMaster® uses high grade polymers in the vinyl strip to prevent marring of materials during the bending operation.
  4. Computer Designed Components Van Mark uses computer designed components, including thicker walls when making the Mark II TrimMaster, ensuring years of dependable, trouble-free service.
  5. Full length Key Way Provides consistent locking pressure along the entire brake with less parts to wear out.
  6. Aircraft Grade Aluminum Castings The strongest computer designed castings in the industry provide the basis for the highest bending capacities you can get in a portable brake.
  7. Patented Cam Locking System Allows the brake to clamp onto the thickness of whatever material is being bent and seldom, if ever, requires adjustment (a claim supported by Van Mark owners everywhere).
  8. Double Journals/Thermoplastic Bearings Double journals with self-lubricating, thermoplastic (UHMW) bearings at every lock point ensures worry free operation in any climate.
  9. Independently Adjustable Wedges You may never have to adjust your Van Mark brake, but if needed, you still have that option.

SETUP Click parts image for reference to numbers seen below in parenthesis.

  1. The Locking Handle has extra bumper grips. Attach it (No. 10) to Handle Post (No. 11) with Fast Pins (No. 12).
  2. Attach Bending Handle (also No. 10 without extra grips), to Handle Post (No. 11) with Fast Pins (No. 12).

MAINTENANCE

  1. Protect working edges and surfaces from scratches, nicks or gouges.
  2. Periodically tighten screws and nuts.
  3. Keep bottom of F-Bar (No. 2) and top of Rear Hinge (No. 4) clean. This is where material is held for bending. This cleaning operation takes only a few seconds and should be done at least once a day.

TRANSPORTING

  1. When transporting brake, keep it unlocked and open or insert cardboard or another type of cushioning material between F-Bar (No. 2) and Rear Hinge (No. 4). This will prevent abrasion and marks, which could transfer to material.
  2. During all stages of use and transportation, ensure your brake is level and evenly supported to prevent warping

ADJUSTMENT
Note: Your brake has been pre-adjusted at the Factory and comes ready for service. Should you want to Fine-Tune your machine at some point in time, follow these steps.

  1. Cut scrap siding or aluminum coil stock into approximately 2” square test pieces. All test pieces must be of the same thickness and one piece is required for each Casting (No. 20)
  2. Unlock brake by pulling Lock Handle (No. 10) toward operator.
  3. Insert one inch of the test piece into the brake at each Casting and lock brake.
     
  4. Note: Brake is properly locked when flat surface of Locking Cam (No. 15) is at rest against slope of Nylon
     
  5. Wedge (No. 16), located on top of Pivot Arm (No. 19).
  6. Try to pull each test piece straight out and determine through feel whether each piece is held with equal pressure.
  7. If you can pull a test piece out, that Casting requires adjustment (see next step).

CASTING ADJUSTMENT:
Unlock brake, loosen screw that secures Wedge to Pivot Arm and slide Wedge towards back of brake in 1/8” increments until desired locking pressure is achieved. Re-test, follow steps 2-4. If Wedges are worn and adjustments cannot be obtained, replace all Wedges with one (1) Replacement Wedge Kit #3900 for Contractor Models, or two (2) Kits #3900 for Commercial Models. If brake is properly adjusted and material continues to slip, material is beyond the brake capacity. Switch to a thinner material, different alloy, or different temper.

BRAKE OPERATION
Techniques and examples shown herein are meant as basic guidelines as each job, or product can vary. We recommend practicing making bends with scrap metal until satisfied with the results.

MAKING BASIC SHAPES

  1. Mark both ends of material to be bent (use pencil, punch or snips).
  2. Insert material in brake to marks, lock brake by pushing Lock Handle (No. 10) all the way to the stop position.
  3. Bend to desired angle in one continuous, smooth motion.

NOTE: During bend, hold Bending Handle equal distance from ends of Handle. If over bend on one end occurs while standing at center of brake, move your body in opposite direction of over bend.
