Need to bend small pieces of metal for fittings paddle wheels etc? This small gizmo is terrific simply held in vice jaws by strong magnets.



Not exactly cheap but I wouldn't do without it for small sharp bends.

Several Aussie sellers on ebay have them this seems cheapest with local post included

Neat idea Damien, not sure how Aussie dollars convert to GBP but I found a UK site that sells a Frost version for £19.99p, which seems quite reasonable to me. Link below.

It's so great you should be on commission, I just bought one LOL.

I have a folder on a stand that is about 2ft wide which is very useful but this vice version will be handy in the model/small project workshop, the other is in the car/motor bike workshop, it'll save a few steps 2thumbsup
