    Hi,

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoy Home Made Tools. I didn't realize it was a requirement to post a project in order to be a member of this forum. Remove me name if you must!

    Hi Steve,

    Welcome!

    No, it's by no means required to post a project, though we do like for each of our members to at least say hello. The camaraderie here amongst the builders in our community is a huge part (and a fantastic resource) of our essential character. So…

    What sort of homemade tools are your favorites? Are you working on anything at the moment?

    Hi G.Paul,

    The bigger bending thicknesses that I have tried without any problem:
    a. Simple version
    0.8mm stainless steel AISI 304 & AISI 430 at 800mm width
    1mm regular steel at 380mm width.
    b. Modified version
    1mm stainless steel AISI 304 at 800mm width
    The max useful capacity of this sheetmetal brake is 805mm (at both versions).
    The sheet metal on demonstration at part3 video
    is 0.90mm regular galvanized steel,
    the bending is 5mm from the edges, and I think that is a very good bending.
    (the smaller the height of bend the most difficult the job for the brake)
    Also keep in mind that Stainless steel needs about 4x more force per mm² than a regular sheetmetal steel to formulating.
    (I am not sure if I have used the correct terminology in English, but I believe you have understood what I mean).
    My needs till now, are only from 0.40~1mm at SS sheet metals,
    so I haven’t try it at bigger thicknesses yet,
    but I am sure that can do the job good enough for bending regular steel, aluminum, copper.
    At what thicknesses/materials plan to be use it?

    Regards
    Bill

    I have a home machine shop, every now and then i get into projects of metal bending. I like to be able to bend 10Ga tats why i asked what gage the brake can handle. I am also interested in a rod bender i can build.
    Thanks
