Cool.

A friend had one built way back with a gas motor & pump.

I can't see what the lower die is made from? Angle iron? He would sometimes want a crisper bend in light gauge; he had 2 pieces of flat stock and placed one in first, then let the 2nd one slide down onto the first one in a herringbone style. That gave him a sharp 90* instead of the angle iron that was used for thick stuff.

nice work, thanks for sharing. I've been wanting to build just such a set up, but I'm thinking my best bet is going to be making a unit that sits on my existing hydraulic press, save on material costs and space. are the dies heat treated at all?

New tool for my shop

That's awesome. Your going to wonder how you ever got along without it. I copied the one Northern Hydr. sells for my Hydr. press. I found that bby going to couple of shops with huge break presses, I could get short sections of dies. I got everything from a chisel edge to a goose neck. They only charged me a few $$ each.
