    It's on it's feet.


    This is what happens when your just to damn cheap to spend $10K on a used press brake that doesn't have half the capacity your looking for.

    MM, looks solid! Is it bolted to the floor? All it needs to do is work for what you need it to do! Looks like your underlying project will be moving forward Soon!.............63bkpkr

    Nope it's freestanding. I tried to purposely tip it over but no luck. I can't even pick on side of it up to move it, which is saying something since I can walk off with a SBC block.

    My underlying projects will be moving forward soon enough. Garage needs to get bigger.

    Yea. Got the box and pan brake to finish along with the wife's she shed. There's no end to the projects list for the forseeable future. On the plus side though, is my fab skills are returning so that makes me ecstatic.

    Well, the die for my press brake is two to three months out with the holidays so it is broke down and in storage for the time being.

    With nothing better to do I started construction on my CNC plasma table. I got the frame and part of the guide rails done. Have to get to town to pick up some more steel to finish the frame.

    This thing turned out perfectly square too.

    Found some more steel so the frame is done and welded out. Got the slat rails welded in. Pics later this weekend after I get the slats in. Lots of cutting for the slats.

    Had a little time to work on the plasma. Ripping the slats out of 4x4x3/8 angle to keep the cost down and use up some of the crap I have laying around. 54+ inch rips with a 6" angle grinder really sucks.

    Got four more slats in and a bunch of holes drilled and tapped for the rails. Sorry no pics. Drilled and tapped holes are boring.
