We’ve gotten a lot of question on sheet metal fab over the years. So we decided to do a brief how-to for you guys. If you plan on doing a decent amount of sheet metal fab there are two machines you’ll want to have in your shop. Those are a sheet metal break and a stomp shear. There are a lot of different options when it comes to these machines from price to size.

Some basic tools for sheet metal are tin snips, stomp shear and maybe a plasma cutter. And while they all have upsides, there are downsides as well. A plasma cutter, for example, depending on your skill set can be hard to get a nice straight cut and also leaves a rough edge. A stomp shear, however, gives you a laser straight line.

It's a sheet metal "brake", not a "break".
