Making in. Breaking in. Making a sheet metal brake.

Tonight, with the help of Steve Finkelman, I built a 12" sheet metal brake. 

It's made of 3/16" thick 1.5" angle iron.  The two base bits, are 14" and the folding blade is 12" wide.  The whole project was made of one 48" long peice of angle iron.

The hinges are gate hinges, and were chosen because they fold flat.
