Designing and Building a Sheetmetal Brake by David J. Gingery

Build Your Own Metalworking Shop from Scrap No. 7

Build a brake, and turn sheet metal into ducts, flashing for your house, boxes for tools and supplies - you name it.

You get far more than plans. Inside this 52 page booklet you'll find drawings, parts lists, how-to, dimensions and everything you need to know about building a brake. You'll find the plans scaled for an 18" wide machine, but you will also learn how people have been scaling it up to much greater widths. Dave will even show you how to use the brake to make common joints and bends. You'll need an arc welder to lay a few beads.

Dave takes you be the hand and shows you construction step-by-step, pointing what is and is not important in the design of the brake. You don't often see good plans for a brake, let alone good ones.
