    Some great ideas in the comment so far..
    1. Springs under orange piece (under wing nuts)
    2. Using bed frame steel for the project

    Let me summarize the rest of comments on this video for you 🙂

    Cool project but..

    I like the music, but there is something throwing off the balance between your talking and the music. It feels like either one or the other should be happening and haven both at the same time is pulling my attention out of what you're saying. Looking forward to seeing more from the new shop.

    Great project Idea: I do have a question/comment for you though..
    How do you get your work gloves so wore out?

    I always lose mine long before they get to that point….

    This would actually be a good project for novice welders too.

    Great build! This is far easier than I was planning and stores much better. Thanks for all you share!

    You ever watch a video and find yourself so engrossed that you have tilted your head (like a dog, dude).  This is one of those.  Simple, easy project, but so cool to watch, as always Bob.  <(")

    How thick of a piece do you think this can bend.

    2:44 – CLEVER. I would have spent two days needlessly filing something and adding putty to something else and then swearing a lot. Also my two cents: I hate the fact that your beard makes music. Why can't it just beard?

    Did you do something different from the usual, from 0:11 and a bit forward. Because the colors and the contrasts was really nice there! I mean it's not bad usually. Actually I think you overall have really good quality content! But I did notice that the colors and that was really nice there! So I'm just wondering if anything specific was different in the process there.

    Next project – metal shear! No more sparks. That would be a really cool project.

    Another great video but I'm not a fan of the music. Maybe I'm so used to your other videos that this just took me off guard. I really enjoy listening to you speak about what your doing. Heck, most of the time I have zero reason to even build the stuff your showing, but I still learn a lot and can use that info for other projects that I plan to take on. Just some feedback from a loyal fan 😉

    Was notching the upper (orange) angle necessary or could you have just cut it off to fit between the hinges? I don't see why it would need to extend over the hinges.

    add springs to the bolts under the top piece, so it lifts up if you loosen the wing nuts, much more conveniant to use if your sheet doesnt get stuck 🙂

    Really like your channel.
    That being said first, the loud background music in the last few videos makes it hard to hear the commentary.

    Great project, Bob. I don't have a need for it now, but I'll file it away in my memory for future use.

    Can I fix another hinge in the middle if I want to make it 6 feet long?

    Like the new video color correction, but it seems a little dark. Especially at the beginning. The metal break is a Great tool to have available when you need it.

    Loved the project and the rocking music. Now I'm curious what this is going to be used for!

    Hi Bob. Great video as always, love your channel. If you want sharper bends, grind away the radius on the angle iron being held down by the wing nuts. There's nothing sexier than a crisp bend lol.
