    It is a BAR WW2 trainer 2x overscale. It was used as an instructional aid to show GIs how the Browning Automatic Rifle operated. A real BAR is 30-06.

    The cool thing about this design is you could also put identical jacks on each end and carefully pump them to achieve a greater and more uniform bend on certain parts.

    Heavy, but not too small for a little engine/ wheelie bars and propel it up the stairs, lol.

    Maybe readers have seen brake I purchased... I need a sheetmetal brake... it has jackscrews arranged between bed and Vee die, according to gauge being worked. I really like the idea of individual pressure units, but like my jackscrews achieving parallel isn't so easy. Pumping two could be worse.
    I'd suggest a single pump, split a manifold to a pair of heavy cylinders. The parallel adjustment could be in threaded clevis and screw. Half a clevis turn divides the thread pitch x .50, turns of the screw for finer increments.
    I'd offer the calculation distributing load equally over 2 points; BUT that currently defies my search terms. It's something like, but not the rule of thirds [as in photography]. It isn't 33.3%
