Did this video help you?

Joe Kozak: do you polyurethane the table for that nice gloss? does it keep welding spatter from sticking?

Jurica Grčević: This is the best video instruction how to make a sheet metal brake. Thank you for sharing information. I really found this video interesting because I am about to make mine too. Good job!

erngre1: Question: If you were to grind your angle iron to a knife like edge wouldn't that remove your round-over edge? And give you a sharp 90. It seems to copy the edge your angle iron already has. Just thinking!

Andrew Williams: I would have put two or three handle holes on it. More even bends. Like a tool chuck locking.

anthony preston: Great job I made one similar saved a couple of hundred quid I use mine for making link boxes for tractors I do up ! Trying to work on a small sheet metal shearing guilotine at moment all the best ant from Wales UK 

Eric Allen: Very nice setup. You can get sharp corners if you sharpen up the hold down angle iron. The radius your getting at the corner is from the radius all heavy angle iron has on it when it's made. Just a suggestion for all that's watching years later like myself. Sharper corner bends will make it easier to weld up later. Thumbs up tho!!

alxndr t: i like the way you think buddy

Adragontattoo: If you make these again ever, you might want to consider not cutting off the notch completely at the corners. Once you fold the basic sides you can fold the tab over to help support the corner. Thanks otherwise! Stealing the basic idea without having access to a welder...

Raymond Harvey: if you would put the handle in the middle you have more pressure on the middle.

Jim Devlin, Jr.: Finally got the supplies this week to build a 4 foot version of this wish I had room for this bad boy. So sweet. 

timspqr: Very very nice. Congrats!

jacky Parker: You said this is to hold water . . when you startedf you cut corners off . . I would of only cut so that corners stay on then when you bend up you bend corners round and use selant and rivets instead of having to weld to make it water tight

Best Racing Tips Win At The Dragstrip: To speed up your set up time when making full length bends, I would drill the bench top for 2 hardened steel pins. Place them at both ends, so that your clamping angle bears against them and it will prevent your angle from sliding back away from the hinge point. Then whenever you want to make a bend, you stick the pins in the holes, drop your angle on your sheet metal, slide it against your stop pins and clamp it tight. No more walking back and forth looking to see if it's still on your layout line.

Debbie Dude: Always wanna have some tubafors around!

gaynor cooper: i want 1 of these, ok maybe a little smaller :@)

Shoeb Md: Brilliant, this technique will put all the automatic bending machines go out of business. 

valveman12: That's a very nice job on those pans.

ircimager: slicker'n owlcrap

slavne: Real nice, a bunch of good ideas. Thanks for sharing!

Dale McFarlane: big shout-out for that very clever idea! this will help me build a sump for rock saw and lapidary cutting arbors,without needing to buy a big brake. glad to know there are smarter folks than myself,out there who kindly share their ideas,so we can save money/time.

Cary Lamari: You are a friggin genius lol I fear the hinges are beyond my ability to make. I want to figure out how to make a 30-40 inch brake to bend 16-20 guage sheetmetal. Loved your video.

Dillon P: great practical solutions, well done

ahmed kamil: Good job! You're doing perfectly as long as you use 1mm max sheet metal or you gonna get an open angle at the middle if you used more than 1mm.

Amanda Zhao: It can only work on the small piece and thin material, and I think it wast the time, but your idea is good 

john hanrahan: While watching you clamp and bend the short sides, I wondered if you could clamp the sheet to the hinged part instead. (?)

John Thomas: This is great idea but I think the handle needs to be in the center to evenly distribute the pressure.

Mob Bob: use some drop bolts to pin the metal down

The Sheet Metal Kid: I like the ingenuity! I was wondering how you were going to bend the last 2 sides.

Bayu Wirahmawan: Thank's for sharing. I really need this tutorials, Im planning to made this bending tools. I think it will cut alot of time compared when i do it manually.

Paul Roberts: Thanks for the video.

William Ward: Hi there, I say your video on this months ago and saw you in an icon did not even think about looking further for some must have been late. I like the rig about how much did you have in it and how many hours? Keep up the good work you guys are great.

Monroe Boone: Hey Buddy...That was awesome. I worked in a sheet metal shop for a year and was delegated the job of brakemaster on a big 10 foot brake. I hated it at first, pinched fingers and barbs and all, but, after I got used to it, I loved it. That was the most secure job in the shop. I had three good teachers, too. Great ingenuity on your part. I enjoyed it a lot. choctawman.

Lawrence Rasmus: I have owned and ran press brakes all my life, mostly high end 3 and 4 axis cnc's I don't have my shop (Retired) I have seen a bunch of DIY 's but if you build a arch across the top with a slot straight across the bottom allan wrench holes to hold different sizes and make it slide front to rear that would work perfect . It would look like a bridge. Thanks for the video

Martin Farmer: Thanx for sharing your ideas. Much appreciated

mikeugh: I like the paint on your tools, what is it? And where can I get it? :) Thanks. P.S. I am talking about the black coating....

redazi1: looks like johnny cach is still alive,good job

John Resler: You may not call tack welding, welding but I tack welded galvanized sheet metal quite often and there's nothing wrong with me... don't ask my wife of course...

avsilva10: very nice

darkstar5d: I noticed when you place both the clamp pieces too enable the bend, they seem to me to be rounded on the edges on both pieces maybe you try and remove the rounded edges as well as lay the pieces flat instead of at laying the pieces on it's side ( /\ side )( ( L flat ) < lay the wood in the L @ the 90 degree angle when you clamp the pieces down )

Kay Jackson: Youtube University is the best! Glad you enjoyed and learned from our video. Good luck on your skid plate.

my02warrior: Brilliant,..thanks for posting!!!, I was just looking for a cheap used brake,...you solved my problem,....I love it when people think crap out. Wish I thought of it! Cheers from Vancouver BC

MrCrazyron1369: The reason your corners are slightly rounded is because your clamp doesn't have a sharp edge.

Brady Jones: Nice brake and demonstration, I always wanted a brake but can't afford the nice ones. After seeing your video, I'm going to make my own. It seems I better get a nice table first. What size table are you using? 3'x6'?

Charles Struble: Don't know how it could be simpler or more effective. Nice job. Thanks for sharing with us.

Who me: Thanks great DYI to build one was looking at buying a new one but most come from China. Keep up the good work.

Josh Navarrete: great stuff btw. like someone else said. I also learn more from people like you than any other way. real experiences from my neighbors. :-)

Paul Preddy: Brilliant & very well explained too. Thanks for uploading.

tcseacliff: I would have tried to locate the hinge on the inside of the angle iron, get them out of the way. could make almost a flat fold it you wanted to.

Sergio Perez: Thanks teacher, this is the best machine I've seen so simple, and the great usefulness May God continue Blessing your mind and give you strength to continue working with great skill.
