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.
