Tennsmith's cleat benders are manually operated tools that form uniform drive cleat edges on rectangular ductwork in seconds without set-up or adjustment. The upper handle forms the cleat and the lower handle opens the tool for easy removal of the material. Heavy cast iron and fabricated steel construction provides long life and trouble-free operation. A Tennsmith cleat bender can save you time and money.
Tennsmith's Model DS24-20 cheek bender is a rugged tool built for increased productivity while getting the most consistent bends quickly. This model's two-way trunnion design holds the bending apron steady at the base of the bend ensuring accuracy throughout the length of the sheet.
This machine can be bench-mounted and adjusts for bends of 1/4 to 7/8 inches, 24 inches long. Tennsmith's cheek bender handles mild steel to 20-gauge.
The Tennsmith notcher, Model 16-18, is a versatile, heavy-duty bench tool for shearing, notching and piercing work. They heavy cast iron construction allows the notcher to be used to side shear six inches of material to its rated capacity; and the throat behind the upper ram is beveled on one side to permit long strips of material to pass without restricion.
Notches of more than 90 degrees can be accomplished in two operations. The upper blades can be reversed for a "nose to heel" cutting action; and the ram stroke can be controlled by means of two set screws to permit limited throat piercing and knockout operations. *Shown with optional stand.
