Bending Block
this bending block is 3/4x3x6 inch hot rolled steel. I first cleaned up the edges on the table saw with a metal cutoff blade. After geting it to close dimensions with level edges, I used amill file and draw filed it smooth and flat. After draw filing , I sanded the edges on the table saw with a 7" sanding disc backed up by a cutoff blade. It works very well and I can do several operations on my table saw. After fine sanding the edges I polished them with fine scotchbrite pad. I then hand filed 4 different radiuses. One radius on each of the long corners. this allows me a bend radius of 1/8th, 3/32nds, 1/16th, and one in between i'm not sure of. It is difficult to guage a small radius.
