I found this inexpensive brake on the EAA web sight that a person build. I’m pleased with how it worked. Here are 3 test samples in the picture of metal that I bent , from right to left, right picture, no set back, center 1/8” set back, left 1/4” set back. In the article person describes one 1/8” setback as working the best and it looks like it does. It cost about $350 in Materials to build a brake, not to bad considering what they want for a production Built brake. The worst part of the whole build was drilling the holes in the stainless steel hinge. Had to rent a magnetic drill to do this. Tryed to do it with a hand drill but couldn’t get enough pressure and turn it slow enough to cut through the stainless. Took about a hour to drill 100 holes through the hinge.

I just had to get it up off the floor. It about killed me off , but it’s done! I think I’m going to take tomorrow off & recover from this two day building spree I’ve been on ! Having a good stiff drink here this evening ! Sorry for the double pictures.

Must have drilled 1000 holes it feel like.Ran out of material to finish making the cap strips. Everything to continue on with them hasn’t arrived. Everything about 3to 4 weeks out . Material for the center sections cap strips should arrive here Friday. Guess if that shows up I’ll work on that. Here’s a few pictures. 3C7790E8-CE97-422E-A08F-B3088B7AAD3A.jpeg
