    Special Sheet Metal Brake

    I needed a special sheet metal brake. I had a project that need to bend the part inside of a cut out. There was just no way to use my box brake. So, I designed and built the tool I needed. And here it is, it worked perfectly.

    It will handle a 12 inch piece, I have stops for adjusting the side guide to be at right angle to the bend. The handle can function from either end.

    Have to agree there. It's interesting to see who else here is a toolmaker as well as myself. That is some really nice work Randy and you have a right to be proud. The faces look amazing as well. Is there a story behind them.

    I am definitely going to be following your restoration thread Randy. I enjoy the show American Restoration a lot and would LOVE to work in that type of business. I am, unfortunately, not in my area of passion (technology, crafting and manufacturing) for work and what you're doing is really my passion. Kudos to you.
