    My Sheet metal Brake

    Been wanting to build one of these for a long time. So needed to bend up some sheetmetal for a sandblasting cabin I want to build.

    Used 50 x 50 x a hefty 8mm angle iron. Bolted it directly to my welding table. Gives me a 800mm long bend.

    Had no problem bending 1mm material.

    Will still add adjusters and springs to the inverted angle.
