I will probably make a metal working table pretty soon and relocate my vice to it but also would like to ad a brake to one of the sides of it. Anybody make a homemade brake that's simple?

Harbor Freight has a small one about 18" I think. My friend has one and it's perfect for making smaller pieces.
