I’ve never owned a sheet metal brake or press brake, but man I wish I did. There are tons of times where I could have used one instead of fabricating brackets from separate pieces that had to be welded together. Hell, my vice surely wishes I had used a press brake instead of bashing metal in it to make the shapes I needed. Even and simple L shaped bracket can be a tough one depending on how thick the material is. Having a press brake like this one would be a big help. This particular press brake kit comes from the guys at Certiflat, who make amazing welding table kits and such, and looks like a really neat project that also will help you build all kinds of fun stuff.
