I am making a custom strike plate (for the hole where the latch from a
doorknob goes). However, the one part I am not sure of is the slight curved
radius for the inside part where the latch first contacts to retract it.
What is the best way to put this radiused bend in a very short part of the
metal. I will be working with either .090 or .125 and the part to be bent
will be 3-1/2 long I am trying to achieve a smooth perhaps 3/8 radius to the
tune of about 30 degrees. Actual radius and degree is not exactly critical,
just the appearance of the finished product.
I am not opposed to adding new tools to my tool box. But only if necessary
Thanks in advance
