Thank you ItsGraGra for pointing this out. The fixed bending edge needs to be set back at least the thickness of the sheet goods or the brake will be 'sprung' when a fold is thrown. This design, with the vertical clamping, would result in the fixed edge being shoved rearwards, the knife edge possibly being swedged up and an inconsistent bend along the middle of the work. Some brake designs use a horizontal bolt adjustment to hold the fixed edge a set distance from the bending line.Thank you Kevanf1, you have put a lot of good work into your construction and Instructable. Locking the clamping edge both verticaly and horozontaly will increase the consistency of your bends.
The platters make good heliographs.
