DIY Sheet Metal Brake.

Post by dean_af on February 16th 2012, 4:01 pm

I built a metal brake and figured I would post some pics. I will spare you the big pics and just post one and a link.
Not my design. Seen a pic and copied the idea and modified it to make it larger and stronger. Still need to add bracing to the top. It works great!

Ignore the mess.
