This is a bending tool for photo etched parts. This can bend any commercially available photo etched parts up to a length of 5 cm (approx 2 in). Suitable for all scales and all types of modelling. This tool works on the same principle as the hinged bending brakes that can be found in many metal workshops around the world. The photo etched parts are held in place between the base and the bending attachment, then they are bent by pivoting the hinged bending plate. The tool can also be used in the more “traditional” manner whereby a blade can be used to bend the parts. The tool is made from tough stainless steel and can be easily stored in your toolbox. The tool comes flat packed and minor assembly is required.
