Hello All: Neat ng here with all the questions and answers on metal
I have a project coming up where I have to bend some 6061 T6 .18" thick
plate. The bend radius can be 1/2 inch, or even larger.
I bend aluminum tubing all time with good success, but it uses a 3 inch
bend radius. And thinner aluminum sheet metal bending isn't a problem,
keeping a eye on the grain and bend radius.
Is there a book or wed site that explains the rules and procedures of
Thanks for any help here.
