There are times when you need to bend a metal part, and simply using a vise and some brute force just won't do the job. This metal bender allows anyone to form a metal part with control.
The product has two parts: the male die and the V-block. Both are made of high-strength malleable cast iron, capable of bending up to 1/8" mild steel. Each piece (about 3" long by 1 1/8" wide) clamps itself against a vise jaw using embedded 1/2" rare-earth magnets.
The main purpose of the metal bender is to make bends up to 90° for such things as angle brackets and sheet-metal parts. Using the V-block on its own, one can securely hold rounds such as rods, tubes and dowels. Combining the V-block with a C-clamp makes easy work of repairing a chair leg. The male die, on its own, can hold complex curved or concave parts between the jaws.
A versatile and inexpensive tool for any shop.
