Hello
I made a tool for bending sheet metal :)
Bending tool designed to work with photo etched parts. It is high quality tool, excellent for every modeller. It is used by hobbyist building tanks, trains, etc.
Adjustable steel bendig blade allows maximal benging lenght of 175mm. In case of metal sheets with thickness between 0,4 and 0,5mm maximal bendig lenght is 50mm

Romanov.

That is very nice work on the machining.

Do you have some dimensions and capabilities of the bender?

Would be nice to bend thin brass and steel for miniature locomotives with something like this, also to make radiused bends.
