Adjust your upper beam forward so thereís room for only 1 metal thickness between the beam edge and the bend line (the split between the lower beam & the front apron). Remove the bumper bar from the front apron. Try bending a sheet. If it bend tight at the ends and soft in the middle your brake is springing and canít handle the gauge you are attempting. Just looking at the height of your upper and lower beams Iíd say your brake is very light and rated only for very light gauges. ~ John Buchtenkirch
