    15" Mini Press Brake

    I have a job coming up that requires a press brake of some sort, nothing large as it will be for small sheet metal parts. Unfortunately I don't own one so decided to have a go at making one from materials laying around the shop and a few extra parts from the scrap yard. It's powered by a 20 ton air over jack I bought very cheaply on the good old Ebay!

    Nice Job Gary! I like this design. I want to build it as a forging press. Any advice?

    Make sure the power supply is quick, the jack i used is quite slow and I don't think would be any good for forging.
