I want to be able to bend aluminum and mild steel sheets, up to about 3 feet wide. Nothing too thick, things like flashing over doors, What I'd really like is something like Tom Silva on "This Old House" uses, but those seem to be in the $2000 and up price category. The tabletop models that clamp to a bench are around $300 on Amazon, and have mixed reviews.
I'd prefer free-standing, since I have room, and I've found that if I have to pull out a tool and set it up, I tend to rarely use it, even when it is the best tool for a particular job.
Just wondering if anyone has a model in the mid-price range, say $500 to $1000, that they might recommend?
