    I think I might just make this one here, http://www.ch601.org/tools/bendbrake/brakeplans.pdf.

    I don't know if I'll be able to make inner fenderwells with it though? The two center bolts look like they would interfere, but I guess it would work with only the two outside bolts. This could save me a good bit of money.

    Thats a good looking brake. May have to make one of those myself. You might givewww.eastwood.com a shot for specialty tools. I know they have a fender roller, not sure if it will meet your needs or not. Look the site over, they may have something.

    For a bead roller I think I'm just going to go with the HF one and beef it up with some square tubing and make a nice stand for it.

    It looks like you can only bend something with about a 1" lip on it...or am I missing something?

    Unless its so long it goes out past the bolts. Material slides between the bolts and onto the table. Bend is vertical.:v6:

    I'll probably get a start on that brake this weekend. I also picked this up today and started filling it up.

    Okay guys I've had a couple :beer::beer: but take a closer look at this guy's web site http://www.ch601.org/tools.htm. He's got some more tools that might be of use. I'll have to look closer tomorrow when I'm more sober.
