Because someone asked about a press brake (in urme), I took the
time to make some photos and write a brief description of my press I
built some years ago.
I have decided to built this 10 to. press when I found a really
interesting concept of bending sheet metal. It replaces the vee die with
a polyurethane bar. This solution is very good for fine work, because it
doesn't scratch the work and is simpler than making your own vee die,
hardening and grinding it.
This press can also be used as a normal shop
press and additionally has an attachment for bending bars straight.
