Did this video help you?

Michael Payne: Hi Doug, very nice. I am planning to build one this month. I searched the comments as far as Youtube let me load them and found no details on the plastic bushing dimmensions or a source. would you be willing to share the size and source for the bushing? Thank you for sharing this.

carlo96: How did you cut the sheet metal into big pieces ( the ones you are bending)?

dozer1642: I love your history of learning.

tommy nailer: that is one very nice table :) nice job

antonio paco: thank you, thank you right from Brazil.

Nishal Koendanlal: nice construction

Jim D: Other than the fact it's "upside down", your rig isn't much different in operation than a manufactured, commercial brake. Nice work.

Now, if I only had the metal fabricating shop to build it....

Nader Fawzy: 14 gage =?? mm

clayjustsayin: Another way to hold down the angle you use to hold the work could just be with a couple of larger, deeper throated clamps positioned from the front, The bending happens within the clamp this way, and you have a more direct load path. Not really better than your way, but a real benefit as you would have a couple of high quality clamps around the shop, instead of merely adequate HB 'on the cheap' tools.

Ernest Boston: 38 out of 938 is 4 percent. Who on earth would give your video a negative rating?!?!? I enjoyed it.

Nerf Dog: Press Brake is different. It presses the metal and is typically used on thicker plate or flat bar.

Niglet “Yolo dog” White man: you should grind away some material from the edges on the angle soo the edges are 45 degrees instead of 90, then you will get a lot sharper bends, but then it is not really any good way to do soo and have it to be consistant

Aaron Farias: great vid man, thanks!

telosfd: 14 gage = 2mm. Nice jobe pal.

FarmerBenny: Awesome. Thanks for making this video!

Maxid1: I made a break out of a couple carpenters framing squares once.

dozer1642: UHMW.

Motorcycle Riders United: Cool, here I was checking out DIY and I recognised the voice.

Barry christopher: why did ypu clear coat your table??????????????????????????????????

Mr. green: this is a brake not a brake press.
