bending aluminium chequer plate


Recommended Posts

Any tips on bending aluminium chequer plate, its fairly thick at 3-4mm, i need to bend it 90deg. I thought if i put some heat into the bend that would help.

Anyone got any ideas/tips?

Presume you've no access to a proper folder, clamp it between two pieces of angle or some other steel and dress it over with a piece of wood, work your way along gradually, probably have to go backwards and forwards a few times depending on the length. Easiest way is to talk nicely to your local fab shop.

Won't bother with adding the thickness of your material to get the correct dimensions of your fold, if it needs to be that accurate fab shop is the route.
