    I remember life before I got a press and then a press brake! I wish I had made a set up like yours rather than scrounging around the scrap bin for suitable bits each time I had to bend a flat or rod.

    I actually made that extra jaw for the press in first place.

    It happens in real time, so you can see that it doesn't take much time to change jaws.

    Thanks Jon.

    Didn't expect this, but thank you.
    I have planned to make plans for the coming vise.
    So, actual video should be " how to assemble made parts" style.
    That way it should be more useful if one wants to duplicate it.

    I have also made plans to that vise that i used with this mod, just needs to turn them to pdf and upload somewhere.
