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.

Must be nice to have filled a tank while spending less than $10.

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.:bigthumb: The faces look amazing as well. Is there a story behind them.

Thank you for the praise Lorne. Yes, this was a side project to this one.

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.:thumbup1gif:
