Another nice sheet metal brake

Without welding and only with standard tools. The author built it to be 42 inches wide (which it a big one). Small ones you can get at harbor freight for pretty cheap.

Well if you have nice sawhorses, and an old ladder that you don’t need. I can see making this for your compound miter. Me…I just got one of those portable stands at Harbor Freight for cheap. http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/portable-mitre-saw-table-cantilever-design-74496?homelistings#post139266
