A piece of equipment used for forming metal.
A tool for bending sheet metal on straight lines. Its primary feature is a thin strong wedge edge that allows bending a crisp line, unlike the rounded corner that simple hand bending. About $400 for a 48" unit. Units normally have slots in the edge or it is made up adjustable pieces so that when one bend has been made a second can be made at right angles by sliding the first in the groove, thus allowing a tight corner. Without a brake, bending can be done by clamping the sheet metal between wood or metal angles and after forcing the bend, hammering it to square - much cheaper for one-off operation, much more time consuming and ugly if needed often. Most heating and air conditioning shops will have a large brake and will bend a sheet or an edge if precisely told what is wanted. 2006-01-18
