On this episode of The Fab Forums I show you the technique used to create curved bends on sheet metal panels. Once you see the basic principals it actually a very simple process. Hope you dig it.

Awesome! I'd like to do this on a partial cutout of a van roof to create a LEAKPROOF OPENING for a custom 3'x4' pop up between my roof rack rails. Any mobile way to do this? I know I will have to weld in 90 degree corner pieces but the bulk of the opening will be seamless. something like this: https://photos.app.goo.gl/K9hWXUBv7A2MLnL5A
Thank you. Been working hard at trying to make some fender repair sections very similar to this but with a tricky double bend lip. I wheeled up the panel to profile but found it very tricky to get the two 90 degree bends on the lip satisfactory. It is very tricky to shrink/ stretch the metal after the second bend is made. I even tried shrinking/stretching using hammers,shaped blocks and pretty much every tool I could think of! I ended up making the flange separate and then seam welding it to the rest of the panel. There must be a way but it ain't easy!
Yo Fam! Can you show us how to recreate a panel or restore one? I bought a patch panel for my 1984 short wide chevy , but it has rust on the right rear section of the wheel well bottom. The patch doesn't match the original any advice or tips on this would be dope. I'll keep looking through your videos incase they talk about it already. Thanks
The Fab Forums No the Shaka hand! By the way I was cruising YouTube the other day, ruffling threw all my usual channels and I came across one of yours. I believe it was the porting an intake vid and I was hooked after that. Great videos, awesome editing fun to watch, and always learning something new. I've been working on my own f100 project myself for a couple years, and can absolutely respect and relate to your self taught wisdom.
Keep up the great work! Best regards and build on!
That could've made for a nice hammer form project as well. Ive made a similar piece that had 3 straight edges bent on the box and pan brake then sandwiched it between 2 pieces of hard wood and hammerformed the 4th edge over to proper curve. Clean up the stretched edge to the proper length and sand smooth to finish.
I like the work you do, I congratulate you!
Besides being inspiring, because I have my restoration workshop although with limitations by the tool '' great '' for example the English wheel or the planishing hammer but little by little I am acquiring or manufacturing my tool.
Thanks for your videos
This channel is the only thing that keeps me coming to Youtube anymore. I bought the Jobber-Do you had on the Friday fool videos, made the intercooler piping on my mustang an absolute breeze! I have a lot of the guys at my dealership buying one since they saw how easy it is.
I work for a company that manufactures aircraft parts mostly our of sheet aluminum and I am very familiar with shrinker/stretchers and I have found that they are much more effective when yoiu only put 50 to 75% of the flange in the jaws also it keeps your radias free of pinch marks
zayres29 i was watching the same thing. Going all the way looses effect. Much quicker if doing half or even the edge. Because there the flance is the most longest and needs to be most shrinked.
Another thing is that with bead roller, could use solid flat die at the bottom. Much more sharp bend line. Then again if you are looking radius bend line, do it like that.
Great video as always Kyle. I love working sheetmetal, kinda my thing. A good low buck way to get the same results, would be a hammer form. Maybe you could do a tutorial on those? I've made some cool crap quick with hammer forms, especially if it's something I need to make more then one of. Keep up the great work.
Yeah, I bought the tools out of order and got a planishing hammer first.....lol I use it but I got a deal on it so I jumped. Now looking for deals on the other shop stuff. It takes a long time to build shop tooling up when you start working from home. I crushed my spine and can't stand without assistance but I still do work son
The Fab Forums Boom!😆
Great tutorial, brother. I've used a bead roller just a little bit. Never used a shrinker/stretcher, but understand the concept. I actually have a pneumatic planishing hammer (it's loud af😲 hearing protection required). I've seen tons of videos on the subject and this one is well done. I like how you explained the idea, then executed the process realtime, leaving the shop sounds in. Gave it a good feel. Thanks again for doin' it and have a great day!
