If your interested in building cages, bumpers, braces... the Model 3 bender is a great way to go! I've had mine for 8years now. Best tool I've ever purchased, 2nd best is the Pro-Tools notcher!

Here's an alternative sheet metal brake link.

http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?t=57017

That's the thread I created on another forum, showing my brake. I have way less than $100 in it. It's 63" wide, and will bend at least 1/8" aluminum. Needs more ballast for anything thicker, which I haven't tried yet.

That's crazy! Just the other day I was looking for this exact same type of software with no luck. Every program I found you had to pay for it. Big "THANKS" for that link!
