    Been slacking on the updates, though do have some. But to hold ya'll over, here is a short video of the brake press in action:

    The main body will be made up of stacked plates with tubing run along the edges. Cut a couple plates, one 1/2" thick and the other 1/4" thick, then drilled a couple holes in the 1/4" thick piece to...
  16. Re: Making a Swag Offraod 50" finger brake our own

    Time to get started on the mid plate. This piece will be crucial to making the press function correctly as well as making it easy to setup and operate. The mid plate will tie the bottom of the...
