Restoration enthusiasts know that if they can't do a job right, it's not worth doing - especially if the job is for a project that has taken a lot of time and money. But doing the job right is getting more difficult: Replacement parts are getting harder to find. Quality raw materials are also getting rarer. That means DIYers are finding themselves more often having to craft their own parts from scratch.
Since 1978 we've been helping the DIY community get the job done right by offering quality tools and techniques for using them. We offer top-quality sheet metal forming brakes to help you produce the exact pieces you need for your project. From handheld tongs to workbench-mounted brakes, our brakes come with our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee, and will quickly find an important place in your shop.
Metal Bending Tools for Fabrication
Anyone who's worked on cars knows a perfectly straight piece of sheet metal can be rare. Both body panels and patch panels often need to be bent to certain angles and shapes in order to fit where they're supposed to go.
Eastwood sheet metal brakes and other bending tools give you the precision for exacting jobs and are easy to use. We have designed a number of metal benders for creating floor panels, truck beds, inner fenders, cylinders and other complicated shapes.
Best Sheet Metal Brakes
From small 4-inch brackets to 48-inch wide engine pans, there's an Eastwood sheet metal brake for sale that will fit your project. These precision-engineered machines can bend up to 22-gauge stainless steel sheet metal, 18-gauge steel or 16-gauge aluminum depending on the model. Most have removable fingers for creating boxes and other container-like parts. Our bench-mounted sheet metal brakes securely attach to your workstation for working with metal. With a mini metal bender, you can work on small parts without the need for a hydraulic press.
Slip Rolls & Straight Seaming Pliers
Sometimes you need more than straight bends and crease. Metal slip rollers allow you to make gentle curves, cones and cylinders in steel and aluminum. This means you can make accurate patch panels for sloped areas such as lower fenders and roll pans. If you're serious about fabrication, check out our 3-in-1 sheet metal formers that have a brake, slip roll and shear combined into one unit. For bending on the go, a set of straight seam pliers can be used to shape patch panels for on-site repair jobs.
