Well, totally new here, but excited to explore this forum! I recently embarked on my biggest tool build yet, Iím scratch building a 6í long 30Ton press brake for bending sheet metal, and hopefully some thin (smaller pieces) of plate.
Iím logging the build on my YouTube channel, if youíre interested to see how it goes, feel free to subscribe and follow along! Iím hoping to have the main structure and assembly done in the next week - though Iím sure there will be a lot of fine tuning after the main build is done!
Here are the first two episodes, should be a 3rd in the next few days.
Any feedback is welcome! (Keep in mind that the videos lag behind the actual build so stuff may already be built!)
Episode 1, the layout - and welder Iím using:
Episode 2, frame welded, making lower, and upper die holder - and my plasma cutter
