Where to get your tools? I guess the hardest thing to find is a cheap Metal brake that will work. Pretty much everything else you should be able to get locally around you. Harbor Freight sells small metal brakes for a good price. Otherwise you can try to rig something of your own to bend the metal. Iím not affiliated with HF but thatís where mine came from. Iíve seen them on eBay for decent prices as well.
