    Anyone got a pressbrake and tooling to bend 3m long 3mm aluminium sheet?

    Ideally near oxford but can travel

    Nothing close and we can adapt profiles to available tooling., nearest is probably 30mm but can be tweaked...

    Just really need to know what we can achieve and then we adjust adjoining profiles to match

    If its something you think you could handle I can send profile for you to assess

    Thanks. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again; the Flypress is an amazing tool to have in a metalworking shop. I’m only just beginning to learn how to use it properly though.
