    I used 10mm bending radius. That's the reason.

    Thanks mate.

    I use angle grinder every day at work. Nothing fits on its place without cutting here. Designers refuse to understand that if they order 40mm thick steel plate, its actually ~42mm thick.. never under 40mm. Still they design slots for 40mm thickness... So, i have plenty of possibilities to train my cutting skills.

    Why not teach them about the 42mm sheets.
    The bender looks quite light , is it?

    You definitely make it look easier than what it is. I was in the military for 20 years in the fabrication shop, I understand completely how the designers/engineers are. A pain in the rear, but you can sure pick up some good skills.

    Sorry my late reply. Somehow missed these comments.

    There's two reasons... designing is bought outside today, so there's no direct contact to them. Also we don't have separate plans for plate manufacturing. We use same plans than machinists, designers "refuce" to make "errors" to the final plans.
    So. It is what it is...
