Ask Av how it works. He seemed to have a general grasp of it.

  It's really not that hard. Stick sheet mental in, pull on leavers, bends the metal

  Called a press brake.

I helped make electronic finger stops for the hydrolic type.

  My Dad had a couple of those in his shop. (An 8 foot and a 4 foot). They were called Sheet Metal brakes. And they were easy to operate.
Put the metal in (as Axle mentioned), use the grey lever to close the brake to hold the metal and use the orange lever to bend the metal upward. Just watch your fingers! Those brakes gave some pretty nasty pinches! OUCH!

  Forgot to add: The 8 footer was sold with the rest of the equipment when Dad closed his shop down and the 4 footer went to my brother when Dad died (although I have full access to it myself).

  Also, I checked on the prices and one of these brakes (manual) would go between $660 to $880 (depending on its capacity) brand new. This old one looks in pretty good shape and would be worth the trouble of removing it.
Here's a web site to check out.

  I've used one of those! There's a sheet metal shop next door to my dad's garage.
