I got an old metal brake from the family of an old machinist who had passed away. It stood in my workshop for almost an year, but I finally restored it and added a new handle to it to make it functional again.
The brake was painted with machine enamel paint, so it should last for few years. I also properly lathered the new bracket so it matches the cast iron look of the rest.
The handle is interchangeable with a metal twister I made some time back.
