Just one question...what you you doing to bend the front piece back to meet the top and the bottom pieces?
Thanks Jeremy, I just score the ends with a cutoff wheel and push them into place by hand. Then, I run a bead along the score and blend it in.

I'm embarassed to say.. no updates.

I still haven't put the finishing touches on this thing (finish welding and paint). I've just been using the snot out of it. Have bent up a few dozen winch plates and at least several hundred small brackets. This is one of those machines that's so useful, you're afraid to have it down for even 1 day.

I think future plans will include 3" and 3.5" dies.. for bending some 3/8" and 1/2" thick brackets..

Hey! Long time no see!!

Yep.. use it almost daily. I still haven't gotten around to shooting paint on it though.

I've probably done at least 1000 bends with it so far.. brackets, winch plates, bumper pieces..etc.

I need to invest in more dies.. maybe some wider dies for 3/8" and 1/2" plate.. and some gooseneck dies for deep bending. I also want to make a die holder for my dimple dies. Just gotta find the time.

Haha. That oven was in work the first time I was ever there. You've been working on that idea as long as I've been busing the same set if axles.
