A press brake is a machine that is used to bend sheets of steel into specific angles. This one was likely home made by the EBT shops staff. It appears to use a hydraulic cylinder to apply the needed force to the steel sheet. Whether the power for the cylinder came from hand pumping or from the Hydrostatic Pump is unknown.
