Sheet Metal Forming Brakes
Eastwood Sheet Metal Brakes and bending tools for fabrication
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 mount 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.
Precision DIY Fab Shop Work
You want your car or motorcycle to look perfect, and even minor irregularities can be painfully obvious. Eastwood sheet metal forming solutions will help you create the vertical and horizontal bends you need for all your restorations. Our industry-leading warranties and no-hassle returns mean you can order with confidence.
Metal fabrication often calls for bending sheet metal at various angles. Our sheet metal brakes make that metal-forming job so much easier and precise. These professional and DIY metalworking tools can work in a variety of widths, depending on the size of your workpiece. Some of our sheet metal brakes handle precision metal-forming projects up to 30" wide, so you can create floor-reinforcement channels and ribs, sections of corrugated pickup bed floors, truck bedside panels, inner fender structures and more in aluminum or steel. Our Slip-Roll creates bends, cones and cylinders, and our Straight Seaming Pliers can be used as a hand-held bending brake to shape patch panels on-site.
