Bending a 2mm thick mild steel strip

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fa3579d50b0>

Quick one:

Do we have something for bending a 2mm thick narrow mild steel strip to 90ish degrees a few times easily (across it’s short edge).

If not I’m pondering a combination of bench vice + hammer + heat + possibly angle grinder scoring + possibly a run across the inside with the MIG if things are unexpectedly tougher than the plan I have in my head

@metaltechs ?

Hi Jason,:sunglasses: a bit of heat, a bending /levarage bar and a pre made shaped jig to bend it around should do the trick, mild steel is springy and using a hammer may cause an accident. Keep well Brian D=

A vice and long lever should make short work of it

2 pieces of hinged hardwood in a vice depending on the size.
