Making a bracket
Hello all. My first post.
I have a Silent Paint Remover. It is an infrared fixture that is held to the painted surface for a minute, and causes the paint to unbond from the surface. The fixture weighs 4 pounds.
The company sells a "hands-free" setup for $200, that I want to create on my own. I have the design done, bought the materials, and now need some advice on production.
I need to make a simple bracket. I have a piece of steel, 1-1/4" x 36" 12 Ga, galvanized finish. I want to make two 90 degree bends, and three holes. Tools available are a vise, hammers, drill, and a mapp gas torch.
Can I get a clean bend in the vise? Should I heat the metal?
