Package deal comprises of the Veritas Metal Bender and the Axminster Power Nibbler.
Veritas Metal Bender
There are times when you need to bend a metal part, and simply using a vice and some brute force just won't do the job. This metal bender allows anyone to form a metal part with control. The product has two parts: the male die and the V-block. Both are made of high strength malleable cast iron, capable of bending up to 3.2mm(1/8") mild steel. Each piece (about 75mm(3") long by 28mm(1.1/8") wide) clamps itself against a vice jaw using embedded rare earth magnets. The main purpose of the metal bender is to make bends up to 90° for such things as angle brackets and sheet metal parts. Using the V-block on its own, you can securely hold rounds such as rods, tubes and dowels. Combining the V-block with a C-clamp makes easy work of repairing a chair leg. The male die on its own can hold complex curved or concave parts between the jaws. A versatile and inexpensive tool for any workshop.
Axminster Power Nibbler
This power nibbler fits into the chuck of a mains power drill and is capable of cutting sheet steel up to 2mm. For best results the drill speed should be in the range of 1,500 to 3,000 rpm. It works on the same punch and die system as a true powered nibbler, effectively removing tiny crescent-shaped pieces of waste in a continuous chain.If you want to cut aluminium, please use a cutting lubricant or soap. Some alloys are sticky and will clog the nibbler with waste. Cleverly, this nibbler is double headed, with the handle screwing over the head which is not in use, so when one die becomes worn, the handle can be swapped over and the other head brought into use. A spare punch and die are included within the steel storage box.
