I've seen plans somewhere but I cant remember where! Bound to be something on tinternet. If you've got a bit of work to do I'd look for a second hand one, it took a while but I got a 6ft Edwards 14g (2mm) box & pan folder on Ebay for 640. It's not perfect but good enough to do what I need. Worth near 200 just as scrap now, best keep it out of sight!

I`ve made a few of these over the years but I`ve never had any plans - just made it up as I went along
To be honest there not much to it - just three lengths of angle , some bits of plate , a few bolts and some tube for the handle is all you need ( and a welder ,drill and grinder )
