Share this Product
Make your own 4 ft Sheet Metal Brake with this set of DXF files and a few readily available parts. Once assembled this machine can bend up to 4 ft of 18 ga mild steel sheet saving you weld inches when fabricating 3D parts from sheet metal.
**This is a DIY project and the results depend on your skill and attention during the fabrication process. excessive heat during welding, improper alignment of the hinges and substituting other parts/materials will all affect the performance and longevity of this machine. It is not intended to be the best brake you've ever used, it is intended to be a fun project that will teach you a lot about fabricating and give you the opportunity to learn the basics of metal forming at a low cost.

Can you cut my logo/design out of metal?
The only way to tell if your logo or design is possible is to send me an artwork file and the dimensions. I need both pieces of info to tell you what is possible.
I currently offer a RAW STEEL finish as standard on all signs. Left untreated the sign will rust and develop a natural patina completely unique to your environment. Due to the nature of raw steel, each piece will vary in look, giving you a unique piece.
The INDOOR FLAT CLEAR coat is the best option if you like the look of the raw steel. It is an oil based clear coat that will hold up well inside and is easy to clean. This finish leaves the steel a few shades darker, sometimes even black.
A UV protected SILVER, GLOSS CLEAR or FLAT BLACK powder coat will protect the steel in the toughest conditions including outside in wet and salty environments. Powder coat is a thick industrial coating that is VOC free and holds up for many years.
Custom and Personalized Orders
If you like a design but want something tweaked, changed, massaged or added, let me know and I can work up a truly unique piece for you. My custom work is priced by the size and finish selected. Contact me and I will set up a Custom Listing just for you!

It is a bummer that the files automatically have approx .03 added for plasma. I handle all that in the can software. I have to remember each time I use the files to compensate. I called and asked if I could have files that didnt have added tolerance and was told to use adjust my software. Files are ok but I was a little surprised with the response.
