In building your rib forms, did you make them the size shown in the drawings, or did you allow for the aluminum thickness, and make the forms correspondingly smaller, so that the finished piece is the drawing OD and not the form? I built my forms to the drawing size, and may have to re-size them
Just got the drawings this past monday. Getting my shop space ready, and starting to figure out how i'm going to build my sheet metal brake. If you have any ideas on a bending brake let me know. I see that you are plans building as well. Good luck!
