I was hoping some of you guys would post pics of some bends you're proud of and/or your set up.

I like doing metal work, but I know there's folks out there who do some amazing stuff with a brake.

I posted here 'cause I didn't want to limit to W,S,&Ds or Roofing...

Here's a custom window wrap.


Here's the setup.


And some work.




This last house is in Gibon Nebraska and was owned by a Pacesetter rep. We did a complete custon wrap on all windows and doors to look original, including caps and arch. All 16ft Alside Fullback.

Hate to be picky Patrick, but..... The top should lap over the side on your sill.
looks like crap when you do it that way cause you can see the rough edge when you look at the window. if you tab the bottom first and then the top over the bottom before the side, water still isn't going to get in.

Thats the first time we have done sills. It has always been a picture frame. Customer wanted a sill, so we had to figure out how to make em. Im pretty happy with it though

That's right, bottoms up, top down, side around.

I can bend H channel.

few more... man, now i really miss my braek and the money i made with it.

The clay and wicker siding job we did the siding and wrap, not the roof or the chimney flashing... just so you know i'm not responsible for that ugly flashing job... the guy didnt even paint the shinny tins,,, what a mess.
