"How To Make A Folding Machine For Sheet Metal Work" # 1

So here is the # 1 manual in the Workshop Equipment series " How To Make A Folding Machine For Sheet Metal Work" or in short a "brake".

When you look at it you will say "this has been uploaded before" and you would be right. The previous upload was the poor quality file I had downloaded, out of alignment, smugged, and a few pages missing.

I have cleaned it up and repackaged it. If you are collecting these, this is the preferred copy.

To download "How To Make A Folding Machine For Sheet Metal Work" # 1, go to my Books - Free Downloads page. # 69 - 4 MB - pdf.

Welded Sheet Metal Bending Brake

So to compliment the small light brake I uploaded earlier here is a welded brake that will handle 20 gauge sheet metal up to 36" wide, thicker gauges in shorter widths. It is less complicated than many I have seen without giving up usefulness. An inexpensive stick welder and a method of cutting your stock to size, a drill and grinder are the main tools you will require. Even an inexpensive import in this size goes for $400 +.

This plan came from The Lincoln Foundations book "Arc Welded Projects Volume III" there are more good plans in this volume, heres the cover and brake plan.
