Did this video help you?

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

Tommy Strandman: 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.

SupaLexy (SupaNautica & MotoLexy): 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.

Patrick Paul: Awesome man! Just getting into steel boats over this way, and I need all the help I can get! You have created many innovative ideas throughout your videos, and I absolutely look forward to viewing more of your vids! Excellent!

grancito2: Where I come from, this is called a sheet metal folder, a brake used a ram with a knife edge bar, to push the sheet into a V slot. But that is a nice simple folder.

EttoreJo: Muy buen video, prolijo y sencillo el metodo de fabricar la caja. aunque no entiendo nada el idioma. Saludos

kingmike40: Why is it that all of the sheet metal brakes the user has to pull up on a handle to bend the metal. It seems to me that it would be better to make a press that would have the user pushing down letting gravity help. Unless the bends have a large stick out as to hit the floor.

Jim Burri: Got the job done !!!!!! Great Job !!!!!

tonny jack: haha..good so simply,thx

JimsEquipmentShed: 38 thumbs down?   What in the hell were they expecting to see I wonder?

Matthew Kiefer: I set up and ran a 250 ton break press and I can tell you why you get the ends in more then the center. You clamp at the ends bowing the top angel iron part slightly. If you can weld then weld a support long wise to the top part to help keep it straight. By the way the bend is called a radius. You did a great job keep it up

staninjapan07: Great video thanks.
Took me back about 20+ years to when I was learning this stuff along with welding and  engineering drawing.
Have not used any of those skills for a long, long time.
Now I want to make something small from thin aluminium, and I am watching all sorts of things like this.
You did a great job with that sheet bender.

OwensBoatClub: WTF is that thing at the start of the vid? A huge Bandicoot or some sort of hybrid rat... scary as!!!!!  But you ended up with a brilliant vid. Your brake is a sooo good an well thought out..  I have to build one just like it on the end of my bench.. thanks for posting!
