Bar and Angle Iron

All figures show the No. 2 Bender with tooling needed for the specific bend. All tooling sold separately.

Bending Sharp Bends or “U” Bolts

Sharp cornered “U” bolts are bent on the same feature of the bender as shown for bending ornamental iron. This feature is also used for bending short close hooks on the ends of rods. It will bend a hook with sharp inside corners and having an inside spread of as close as 5/8″. It has a capacity of 5/8″ round or square stock or 3″ x 1/4″ flat stock, cold. Illustration shows a sharp square bend. (Figure 7)

Bending Ornamental Iron Work

This feature of the bender is used in making Ornamental Iron shapes and various other intricate bends. Bends a sharp corner and will handle work as small as the making of a staple or a small nail. This feature has a capacity of 3″ x 1/4″ flat stock or 5/8″ round stock, cold. Illustration shows an ornamental iron shape being formed. (Figure 8)

Bending Angle Iron with Flange Inward

Attachments for bending Angle Iron with either the Flange Inward or Flange Outward consist of a Master Die with which forming blocks of various radii can be used. These blocks work on a wedge principle so that when the bending pressure is applied, the horizontal flange of the stock is held in a vise-like grip. This helps prevent crimping or twisting. (Figure 9)

Bending Angle Iron with Flange Outward

Forming Blocks for bending radii of 5, 6, 7, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24, 30, and 36 inches are furnished with Inbend and Outbend Attachments. Blocks for any radius up to 10 ft. (Minimum Inbend: 3″, Minimum Outbend: 4″) can be furnished if desired. Both Inbend and Outbend Attachments have a capacity of 2″ x 2″ x 3/16″ stock, cold, or 2″ x 2″ x 3/8″ stock, hot. (Figure 10)

Bending Flat Stock Edgeways

Bend Edgeways with Edgebend Die used with outbend master die, wrist pin and inner radius block. Size of inner radius block determines radius of bend. Capacity 3/8″ x 1-3/4″ cold. Bends flat edgeways from 4″ inside radius and up to any degree including 360 degree circles. Same setup used for bending hand rail capping edgeways. (Figure 11)

Bending Notched Angle Iron

This feature of the bender is used for bending sharp bends on angle iron after the point of bend has been notched. This feature has a capacity of 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ x 5/16″ angle iron stock, cold. This special Die will also form sharp “V” bends on flat stock. (Figure 12)
