Simple Home Made Sheet Metal Bender




What do you think about this video?

shortfusedleathernk: I did grind the edge off the angle to get a square bend!

shortfusedleathernk: Jim, pause at 1.41,you'll see the hinge pin is centered between the channel iron and the angle that makes the bend. Hope this helps, if you google sheet metal bender plans you may find plans that are similar 

shortfusedleathernk: I ground the rounded edge off the angle iron so it would be square for the bend!

Gerald C: good job , if part attached to handle was vertical with 3/4" thickest could do more types of bends also and if angle iron on springs was replaced by a 6" wide grading machine blade cutting edge with reinforcements, sheetmetal sides could be folded for strength and about 1/4" metal could be bent. mine is 27" wide and will bent 1/4" metal no problem, biggish problem I had was how to make clamping and bending pieces work for 1/4" thichest 

tryin2lhard: Nice work man, what did you use for your springs?

telosfd: In case that i like to install the hinges what is the appropriate cut depth of the metal angle. Is it the half of the diameter of the hinge? Thanks a lot.

shortfusedleathernk: Yes

erngre1: Nice. I just looked at another vid about a homemade break and I would ask you the same question. If you were to grind the angle iron to a 90 at the edge , do you think you would end up with a cleaner 90 degree edge on your bent part? I want to make one. Why not have you do the work for me to copy. Just say'en LOL. Good vid and good work.

marcellinasfigaro: That's a pretty slick little bender. Thanks for sharing!

pausat Garcia: OK MY FRIEND , SIMPLE , YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST ...GENIUS

d.i.y.man: excellent video ! are the springs there to make it easy to pull out sheeting and avoid scratching of sheet metal ?

Jim Pritz: How did you deal with the fact that angle iron does not have square edges, they are all rounded? Don't your bends all end up somewhat rounded because of this? Thank you.

09salva: I like ,Very good design,congratulation my freind.

Bob Bishop: Totally answered my question on how to make a sheet bender. Thanks. Awesome bit of equipment.

Mario R: if you put a cross bar in between 2 handles, you will not be able to bend over to see how far you are bending your sheet. The cross bar would prevent you from leaning over to see. Probably 2 handles with no cross bar, I might make mine that way

jack morgan: The springs on the ends are a fantastic idea.

joshoshea100: Looks and works pretty sweet

ritzitzit: aha!

Dennis Engelkenjohn: Is there a blueprint available?

Avalon888: Lovely simple design and a nice touch with the springs. Thanks for posting!
