    Bert, that bend is accomplished on a large hydraulic press brake. The machine required to do that kind of forming is too much machine for my outfit, so I plan ahead and outsource all of our heavier forming.

    If you like that bend, you'll love these. I had these formed out of 3/8" material. Due to the geometry, we couldn't form it all from one piece, so I had to weld on the bottom to create last bend. Heavy metal, dude. I made two of these about seven years ago for a hotel in my area.

    For KB

    Now, before KB trips a breaker when he's ampin' out wondering why there are no pics of the WELDS... here are a couple.
    We made the cleats to hang the chase from some 3/8 x 2 stainless 304 bar we had kickin' around. I decided to TIG these for no particular reason. I then used a 309 rod and switched back to stick to weld the cleats supports to the back of the chase.

    I may be no KB or Engloid, but I'm finding my way.

    1 and 2. GTAW for the cleats.
    3. SMAW to the backside.
    4. Shimmy into place. Heavy metal.
    5. Just add water.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hats off to all the stick weldors.
