The Trim-A-Brake II is a slide brake, it does not have score guide system necessary to use the Trim Cutter. Our hand tools work with CAM lock system brakes, Mark I, Mark II, Mark IV and Metal Master models. When you lock brake closed, Trim Cutter, Quick Score and Trim Former with 4 point track bearing system glide across score guide. Please contact Van Mark Products for further information at (800) 826-6275.

Order arrived quickly and Undamaged. It was packaged and banded on a crate which I think was very professional to ensure no damage during shipping. Excellent product, plan on buying in the near future.

My new van mark break has been a great time savor and cuts costs as well.It was over 300 cheaper than anything in town, my only regret is not buying it sooner.

Difficult to use. Had to stop holding material in place to reach to end of brake for locking material in place. Which leads to poor cuts often and wasted material. I’m returning it

It's a long break. Some parts needed to be unscrewed rotated and reattached for first time use. Delivery date quote is meaningless. Lost a day's work because it didn't get delivered as quoted. Buy the stand.
