    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    I would like more information on how to build one also and would like to see a write up the builder supplies with the projects posted. I realize this would take more server space and I'm not sure where Miller stands on this, but it's an idea. Also it could include information on how to contact the builder if he wishes to release the info. That way interested parties could contact you on their own for more discussion.

    Thanks for the idea inspiring projects you have been good enough to share.
    Yes, that is my press break. The base can be most anything of metal. Mine is
    about 1/2 " thick and of cast iron. I milled a recess the length of the base to capture the v block but you can use side rails as guides also. The upright guides are cr 1/2" round. The break bar is 1/2" x 1.5" with one edge ground down to the shape of the v block or slightly less so the bar can go to the bottom of the block without hitting the side walls. The break bar has a 1" piece of CR welded to each end and bored slightly larger than 1/2" so it won"t bind but not too sloppy. A couple of springs and you're ready to go. This is a small brake as can be seen by the 6" straight edge in the pic. I made this from stuff I had laying around the shop. Other than the cold roll, I'm not sure what the other is. It's handy to make a crisp bend on heavy stock which is hard to get on a regular bender. That's where the v block comes in. Hope this helps. That is also my metal bender( red and blue) in the gallery next to my magnetic torch holder.
