"I have had this brake since approx. 1997 and finally only changed the wedges. They are the best brake on the market and recommend them to anyone buying a brake."

"The Mark II is an excellent product that I have been using extensively for the last few years. The clamp handles on it are really nice and easy to work with. Bending aluminum trim has never been easier"

"I very happy with my unistand, easily able to move the Van Mark break around the job site and in and out of my van. Ordinarily a 2 man job but now I can move it by myself. Great price and great aid. Thanks"
- John Q., Conception Bay South, NL, Canada
"A few weeks ago I ordered a Mark IV Industrial. I hesitated for many months because I was concerned that this style brake would not allow me to bend/cut 6061T6 or 2024T3 up to 0.032", which is primarily what I work with. I bit the bullet and bought it, and I wanted you to know that I am thrilled. It does everything I want and more. It is incredibly well engineered and built, and is certainly sturdy enough to work the aluminum sheet I have. I build aircraft parts, and I think every aircraft builder should have this machine. I also use it for my business, and it makes sheet metal parts so well that we design parts specifically for this machine!"

"I currently own two Van Mark Brakes. I am interested in purchasing another one. I am also interested in purchasing all of the accesories and would like for you to consider me as a spokesperson or reference for the new accessories coming out soon. I used the brake to side my 4,000 square foot personal home and received an award from the Vinyl Siding Institute for craftsmanship. The craftsmanship shown included bending metal in half round shapes covering the trim on the house. I would be willing to send you pictures of the house to show what the Van Mark brake can do. I am looking forward to using the new brake and accessories."
- Kevin M., Alco Vinyl Siding and Window co., Inc., Lynchburg VA
"Bought a Van Mark alum brake last year and was very pleased with the product. Ordered a TrimCutter last week and plan to purchase all accessories for my brake in time."

"I’ve been using Van Mark Brakes for over 30 years. Best brake around."
- Lester M., Wichita KS
"Just wanted to say thanks again to you and your crew for all your help in getting my 1970's model Trim-a-Brake sheet metal bender back in working order which I found under a heap of rubble in my dad's barns. It was too good to put in the scrap aluminum recycle bin even if it had some main parts missing. All too often companies tend to disregard what a customer would like as far as keeping an older model and push for spending more money and get a newer model. So thanks for going beyond the call of duty and making it a very economical and pleasurable experience."
- Tim S., Lethbridge, Alberta. Canada
"I recently purchased a Mark II TrimMaster. I have been a longtime user of Tapco. Other than the initial sting of the price tag, I have not looked back,
nor do I plan to. Your product is by far the best on the market. Thanks!"
