Exceptionally useful sheet metal benders which fit to the jaws of a vice with magnets. The die is in three parts allowing a range of complex bends to be formed. Available in two sizes, 100mm or 150mm.
|Max Material Thickness||2 mm|
|Overall L x W x H||100 mm = 102 mm x 87 mm x 33 mm 150 mm = 152 mm x 102 mm x 42 mm|

Does what it says on the boxI needed to bend some 1/8" strip and this does the job well. For bright drawn mild steel 1" wide, it took rather an effort to start bending it and the strip cracked after bending it about 30 degrees. I then annealed the strip and it bent perfectly. I would think that bending 4" wide un-annealed BMS would be very difficult if not impossible. If you need to bend hard material, then softening it first would be a good idea. Does the job well and makes really sharp bends. It would be nice if it were supplied painted.

Very useful.Very good little tool, the magnets hold it to the vice jaws properly, and the bends are very tight, and accurate. If your bending very thin stuff though, its possible to go too far and end up with an acute angle, but thats not an issue.

A Brilliant Piece Of Kit.I needed to put a 90 degree bend in a piece of mild steel about 3mm thick. Clamping it in the vice and thumping it with a hammer wasn’t going to do the job satisfactorily, but by using one of these I soon produced a well formed right angle just where I wanted it and without too much effort.
