A commenter on our recent mini bending brake post points us to Experimental Aircraft Association member Dave Clay’s DIY brake design from the opposite end of the size continuum. Dave built it to make long bends in sheet aluminum for constructing kit aircraft parts. It’s made of stock steel shapes and cost less than $100. [Thanks, rocketguy1701!]
