    I built my own in a day based on this design. mine can handle 12 gauge steel. I don't know why this guy scores it in his video.

    Thanks, but that is way overkill for just making 4-stroke bike mount bases.

    I can use 16g steel.
    This will bend 16.


    $40 at Harbor Freight, picking it up today.

    And I found this 5-35mm step drill bit for making my 35mm bearing holes similar to this inch based one.


    $15 off Amazon.

    If those will work for 20 bases that's all I need for now.
    The batch of production will come with my bases pre-made.
