There is a thread on here where a feller built one on the end of his welding table. I remember it, for what ever that's worth.

Guys with soft hands are good at spelling. Men with calloused hands who build bad arse stuff sometimes make spelling mistakes.

How long ago?
Could it have been Big Iron when he was building feeders and stands?

I'd say with in the last year or so. Wasn't Corry, hasn't been around in a much longer time. This hand was experienced at what he was do-n. Works metal for a live-n, like me. That's what caught my attention.

The material, material thickness and width will drive how stout the brake will need to be. I was able to bend 0.080 steel diamond plate for my UTV roof by scoring with a cutoff wheel and using a brake that was kluged together. Might also consider a press brake with hydraulic jacks.
