Plate and Strip Bending Tool
My version of a familiar tool which has appeared in many versions, many times before on Meccano sites and publications. This one is the result of much rebuilding and has laminated side struts made up from several strips to add strength and bearing surface for the three rollers that actually shape the plate. As an addition I have fitted three long collars to the ends of the three shafts to enable complete circular strips to be bent then removed from the machine.
An updated version of the machine with additional gearing is shown in the later photos.
