    Maybe will be intersting (or just for fun) my own easy and cheap louver press tool from Russia.
    This press can make a beautiful louvers in 0.4-1.00mm metal.
    I attach an my old car lift jack as a power source.
    This construction is really very cheap and easy.

    Built my tubing bender a few years ago. Bought the dies from Pro Tools, air over ram from HF, bender arms I cut and drilled from some 1" stock I picked up at a scrap yard.

    roll bender

    And finally here is my roll bender. This was alot of work to bulid, but it is handy to have around. I got the drive unit out of a pile of scrap. This bender must weigh more than 300 lbs. I arced the rear link bars for my current build, it also put the arc in the top of our outdoor movie screen.

    cool

    here is the coolant system I added on to my drill press. It uses a propane tank as a coolant reservoir and a regular 120v pump. I really like it for when I am using hole saws.

    cool

    I always like these threads, I always see something I need. Here is my belt grinder, uses a 2"x72" belt. It is built mainly from extra stuff, there are a few different attachments with different size wheels. I use it all the time.
