Bending Brake Redux

Honestly, how long did I think a bending brake made of wood was going to last? It broke while making a bracket for the front fender on some 1/8" aluminum strip. So for the last two weeks, I've been making Brake v2.0 using Aluminum Channels, Iron Pipe, and a heavy duty steel hinge. (design inspired by Dave Clay: http://www.ch601.org/tools/bendbrake/brakeplans.pdf)







Nuff said~!

  1. It's manly when you make the tools you need before you can work on your project!
