Sheet Metal Forming Brakes

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 to fit where they're supposed to go. If you fabricate your own parts, then you'll need to own at least one sheet metal bender to Do the Job Right.

Eastwood sheet metal brakes and other bending tools give you the precision for exacting jobs and are easy to use. A sheet metal brake is a special type of metalworking machine that can put creases and bends into a panel. They go by several names, including bending machine, bending brake and sheet metal folder. 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

More than a dozen different metal bending machines proudly bear the Eastwood name. 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. Here are a few of the metal bending brake options and what DIYers can use them for:
  • Cornice brakes, such as the Eastwood Versa Bend, create simple creases up to 90 degrees.
  • Box and pan metal brakes are specifically designed to form these shapes along with reinforcement channels and ribs for added strength.
  • Bench-mounted sheet metal brakes securely attach to your workstation for working with metal while taking up less space.
  • A vise press brake makes ribs and channels while conveniently attaching to a bench vise.
These precision-engineered machines come in many sizes for everything from small oil pans to truck doors. 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. With a mini metal bender, you can work on small parts without the need for a hydraulic press. In addition to an in-house Eastwood metal brake, you can also purchase benders from top brands such as JET Tools, CertiFlat FabBrake and Malco.

Slip Rolls & Straight Seaming Pliers

Sometimes you need more than straight bends and creases. 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. The Eastwood Rod Forming Tool is another specialty brake for sheet metal bending which allows for the creation of custom frames and roll bars. For bending on the go, a set of straight seam pliers can be used to shape patch panels for on-site repair jobs.
