    240z - fabbing new front rails

    I thought I saw some custom mill work on your mini brake. Is that a Smithy lathe in the background? Your brake is a great tool for making all the small brackets. Thanks for sharing - I wasnโ€™t joking about copying it ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yup - same idea exactly. I used square tube instead of plate because the section adds strength without all the weight- kinda like our cars ๐Ÿ˜€

    It is internally geared to 60 rpm but it was too fast so the large gear brings it down to 10-ish rpm.

    Hey Captain - the mini brake is fantastic! I will be copying that! Plenty of times that I need a 4 inch piece and cand be bothered to drag out the 4 ft bender. Making tools is fun - it could become a whole separate (probably expensive) hobby for me.

    Haha - good point for sure ! The bead roller started out as a Princess Auto (Harbor Freight basically) special. It was junk. I kept the dies and started over. Gears are from Boston Gear, Motor was pulled from an electric hoist. It was a fun project on itโ€™s own!
