Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Benchtop Metal Bender

The Eastwood 4-Inch Metal Bender is a compact but strong steel bender that is capable of completing precise bends up to 3/8-inch thick mild steel. It’s an affordable metal forming tool that fits on any workbench with easy hand-crank operation. Save space and time when bending suspension brackets or seat mounts for your project. Others use our medium-duty metal bender for patch panels or ornament artwork.

To make custom parts, simply mount the compact bender on a work surface with four bolts and start bending your desired material. There’s no need for a full-size hydraulic press that takes up a large amount of space in your shop when you can achieve the same results with a metal brake that’s a fraction of the size. The Eastwood 4” Metal Bender is a high-quality industrial-style tool capable of generating a powerful 2.5 tons of pressing force.

The Eastwood 4 Inch Metal Bender Features:

  • Powerful 2-1/2 tons of pressing force
  • Create up to 90 degree bends
  • Generates 2.5 tons of pressing force
  • Bends mild steel and aluminum up to 3/8" thick and 4" wide

Simply mount the bend on a work surface and start bending your desired material. No need for a full size hydraulic press that takes up a large amount of space in your shop. Save space and time when bending suspension brackets or seat mounts for your project.

Use your metal bender board to create 90-degree or lesser repeatable bends in mild steel and aluminum up to 4” wide. On 1/8-inch thick steel, you can increase the bend to 125 degrees. The maximum metal thickness varies depending on how wide the steel plate is; consult the chart below before getting started. Shop at Eastwood for professional-quality metal forming tools that cost less than comparable equipment from leading brands. We provide free technical support by phone, email or the Eastwood Garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metal bender Great price. Works well. Wish there were replaceable dyes for a sharper bend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Bought it to make custom brackets out of 1 1/4 x 1/8" flat steel bar. Extremely easy and precise. Once you get your bend at the right angle, crank another half turn on the handle to allow for spring back so it comes to rest where you want it when the pressure is released.

Questions & Answers

I have a 4 1/2" long 1/8" think steel bar. I need to make 2 - 90 degree bends, both 1.33" from each of the ends, in the same direction. Will I be able to make the 2nd bend or will the first bend interfere with being able to make the 2nd bend?

Asked by: Sean
Unfortunately that would be to tight of a bend for this tool.

Can this item bend 3/8” round stock?

Asked by: Stevenw
The Eastwood 4" Metal Bender(20521) will bend 3/8" mild steel round bar. You will need to set the round bar to the bottom of the bender to keep it from twisting when bending.

I need to make a handrail of 2”x1/4” aluminum. Each end should be curved similar to a sidesways U to match an existing rail. Can gm this tool create wide curves, rather than bends? Is that just a technique of how to use the tool? Thanks

Asked by: Lilly
Based on what you're describing our heavy duty metal bender would make gentle curves much easier in your aluminum. https://www.eastwood.com/heavy-duty-metal-bender.html

Could this bend 1/4" x 4" plate at lesser angles. I'm not looking to make true 90 degree bends but only slight bends from level surface.

Asked by: Matt
This tool is rated for 3/8" mild steel. Anything thicker will compromise the frame of this tool.
