Well gang, I had a project that required special tooling to complete it. I am restoring a gas pump and the computer face plates required a 45 degree bend inside of a rectangular cut out. The face plates are reproductions that weren't finished properly. My standard box brake was not up to the task and so made a custom 12 inch brake that can accommodate special tooling for special bends. Here is what I came up with.

Looks like those face plates appreciate all your effort on their part. I'm sure now that you have it, you'll find more uses for it. Mike
