    This thread - and therefore, I now blame you, Jon - got me looking at sheet metal benders on eBay.. I'd love a press brake, but I think I might have to settle for one of the £60 'folders' instead

    Ah but you know you ready want one. When I was looking you have to make sure you get a wide enough one to accomadate long lengths. I have seen some people making them with spare angle iron and box section.

    But found this one that does 1m

    Aaron,

    Returning to the original subject, aluminium - just been listening to a fascinating (well, to me anyway) program on the metal in question. It was part of the BBC Radio4 series "In Their Element" which has covered a variety of elements all of which were interesting - recommended listening when you are trying to escape the banal Festive TV, Merry Christmas



    Regards,
    Ian
