    Re: Let's talk about bending metal

    I am excited, so I will share. I have the "lil" 30" brake (2nd pic) in the shop now, and although it works OK it isn't precision by any stretch of the imagination. I have used it enough to become somewhat "addicted" to metal bending ... So I just ordered the 24" brake from HF (1st pic). If I had more room in the workshop I would have got a bigger one ... not that I need a bigger one, but isn't bigger ALWAYS better?

    Shipping was only $11.99 ... apparently based on price not weight ... so it is coming to me
    Hopefully next week.
    The sad thing is, when I go in the store I buy stuff I may never need and seldom use, just because it is a "good deal". I thought I would avoid that by buying on line, but they have the "clearance" link, and freight is so cheap, I couldn't resist adding about half a dozen other things to the cart. Shhhh don't tell the wife

    Ha ha, [don't tell the wife] How many times have we all said that. I think I would be dead now if my wife new. ha ha. But at least she is getting a new bathroom, I love brownie points. Congrats on the brake, looks like a really neat addition to the workshop ooops.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    if a brake is rated to bend 20ga. mild steel, what would be the equivalent for sheet aluminum that it could handle? I would think it could bend thicker aluminum (like 16ga)?
