Reverse Bending 1/4" X 6" Zinc Plated Steel

Recommended Posts

I have a few Zinc Plated steel rods that I already cut to 6" so I figured since DO bending them is so easy for me I would try to do one Reverse style for a change. It felt fairly easy, but I don't know how difficult this piece of steel is anyways in the overall picture of things. As always feel free to comment on my technique, its literally the second piece of steel I have bent Reverse so I'm sure there are a few things that can be tweaked!

Thanks for taking a look.

Can't watch the video because I'm at work right now but that's a nice bend. Typically, the zinc plated steel is easier than the cold rolled steel. If I were to calibrate a piece, I'd expect it to hit 200 to 225 pounds for a 6 inch piece.
