    Thanks for posting this. While you're correct that there are a ton of variations for press brakes, how an individual makes his/her version based on the materials on hand is what makes each build unique.

    Absolutely, DIYer; A little over 50 years ago at the ripe old age of 11 I started work as an apprentice in a Black Smith shop. Sweeping up cleaning out the forge turning the crank on the blower. And listening to the stories of a 70+ year old master tell of how His Great Grand Father had started the shop many many years before, the Elder had made one point abundantly clear to him.About how you could accomplish true works of art with very simple homemade tools. After a while I was handed a pair of tongs that Clarance said were at least 120 years old to use along with a hand made hammer to begin making my own pair of tongs To be sure my first tongs were crude even with his minimal assistance in making them. But they functioned well enough to make an even better pair latter on.
    Many of my simple special use tool builds are done with one thing in mind to accomplish 2 tasks. #1 to function well enough to make that one work of art #2 to show others that they do not always have to spend a lot of money to accomplish an end result. Anyone with the means can hire someone to make something for them or buy new off the shelf. But if they will just stop for a moment and think about what they really want to accomplish. A lot of the time they will have something hucked way back in a dark corner behind 10 or 20 years of accumulation that could be used to make a tool to help them accomplish what they want.
