bottle nose root ribs?

Posted on February 21, 2014 at 2:40pm 5 Comments

Root nose rib 75-w-4-1 drawn out does not match to root rear rib 75-w-4-2

Any suggestions…

If you are looking for a good brake to build try Macsmachine.com.  I built this one and have a video of it on my page.  Good Luck

Hi Peter

I just want to confirm, a "Bending Brake" as you call it. is it a sheet-metal bender?

If this is what you are referring too, I'm still trying to make a plan myself. started bending last night, but really struggled. I ended up making this JIG< and it seems to have worked well. I still have to sort out some sort of metal sheet bender, will send photos if i get it right.

Cheers
