Bending metal on the jobsite just got easier with the Versa-Bender and the Versa-Hemmer. The Single Station and the Double Station Versa-Bender fabricates and bends metal on the job site such as counter flashing, saddles, fascia and metal roof panels and can bend metal up to 90 degrees and quickly adjusts to the desired bending depth of 5/8 to 7-1/2 inches. The single station bender has one set of rollers that help in bending smaller panels. To assist with bending longer pieces of metal the double station bender has two sets of rollers, for maximum efficiency and uniform bending. The Versa-Hemmer compliments the Versa-Bender by completing the 90 degree bend to a complete 180 degree fold and is ideal for bending panels in valleys, rakes and interlocking panels and can bend a depth of 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches, is easy to use and requires no special training.
