Thanks jamscal on pirate 4x4, I've worked in a lot of shops,but I have very little time on a Brake. I really like the way you designed your dies.Hopefully I'll be bending some sheets before summer.  I was wondering about the bottom Di. You have 4 sides with different angles and depths so I was curious what are the angles and depths? What is the thickness for bending with each side of the bottom Di? This is by far the best homemade design I've seen on this site.
