I made this Box Pan Folder mainly out of scrap pieces of material that I had lying about. The only material I purchased was for the fingers. I was very fortunate to work for a company that I was able to do a bit at lunch times and built it over several weeks some 30 years ago. I recently gave my slip rollers a make over and decided to do the same for the folder. This little folder has been a great little servant and deserving of this makeover for all the jobs it has produced over the years. Originally painted in green hammer rite I now what was I thinking (It was 1989)
It is able to bend 16 gauge and the front former can be raised and lowered to change the bend radius for different gauges of material or set to a desired radius. The fingers are different imperial widths so they can be gang to together to create the require width of bend when making boxes etc.
