Wow talk about bringing back the Eighties. I hear flock of Seaguls as well, and leg warmers.


Sounds good to me! :)

Sure it does, that's why you came on here to ask how to brace it, right ?

Here we go.  :sleep:

LoL, a home type press....

 

I've been around industrial sheet metal equipment for many years, and that square tube frame stuff doesn't even come close on the strength scale.

 

Find a place you can pick up some 1/2" scrap steel plate, and cut some out to completely cover all the open air space on that frame, on both sides.

 

Move the pump to the back, as it will be in the way to plate over that frame.

LoL? every louver press for automotive application I've ever seen has been custom made. The machine punches fine and has been reliably used for over 20 years, just looking to stiffen it up. As far as tearing the thing apart to fully box, ideally sure? that would make it stiff, but not practical since it already punches fine.
