bending u channel

littlemoretinFebruary 22, 2009

Hi All:

I want to bend a ¼ inch stainless tin u channel to fit around a 4 inch radius right angle with as little deforming as I can achieve. If this cannot be done in stainless I could use brass and then have it chrome plated but stainless is preferred. What equipment do I need to do this and how do I proceed?

Heat is probably out because of the discolouring if that's an issue, I'm not too au fait with stainless in that regard but usually you want to cut a v out of it - I guess it'd be 90 degrees? then bend it, probably around some material to use as a die.

So in theory a hacksaw and some sort of vice.
