casper1240: Very similiar to mine i used door hinges instead of tubing but works perfect on light gauge stuff
He Ka: Easier to clamp the sheet metal to the bending bar.
Bronze Dog: Boooo! Harbor frieght. Thumbs down.
Bear: hi Doug I think you can improve the quality of the bend by sharpening the edge of the counter piece at the bottom where it touches the metal sheet you can see that the edge is a bit beveled. another thing I have noticed is that if you move the handle to the middle than perhaps you can better distribute the power applied, I might be wrong... it's just an idea.
AdamosDad: Your top angle iron needs a beveled or knife edge to get a really sharp bend.
XplaneZ: Genius with the short angle iron Thank 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 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
