Hey guys I've been lurking around for a while and I really want to build several things. The fe first being a metal break that I can brake a 4 foot wide piece of 1/8 plate! I like building grills and gas cookers but right now I have to brake them out at my day job and my boss is kind of mosey so I was thinking about trying to build a break that I could do this at my home. I would even build a pan style brake if it's possible. I am just looking for ideas on how to go about this the most cost effective way. This would be used as side income so investing 10-20 thousand is not logical. I would appreciate any advice or thought and know how that can be offered! Also I am gonna tell you a some information about me. I've been in the welding business for 20 years. I started welding rebar for a concrete company and was basically self taught until a landed a job welding dredge pipe for a man that took the time to teach me the correct way! I've worked my self up the ladder and welded for 10 straight years before I started learning to fit. Now if I have a print I can build anything you want! But when I comes to designing and stuff like that I have zero imagination! Building the brake will be no problem coming up with the design of it is where I am gonna struggle! So again any help would be welcome and thanks for taking the time to read all this!
