I've just bought a scroll-bender and bar bending-brake (V-tool type) from WNS, of Rochford, Essex.
The company specialises in power-driven sheet-metal, pipe & bar forming machinery, particularly for ducting and similar manufactury, but has a range of smaller, manual machines. Though judging by the operating manuals I think they are actually made... elsewhere.
Prompt delivery following my telephoned order; my only beef being that the packing was inadequate for the larger, heavier scroll--bender with its several separate parts. Fortunately, with help from WNS' sales lady and a photo she kindly e-posted, I established nothing was damaged or missing. A "spare" hole in one component proved simply associated with that component's use on another rmachine.
This iis not my first purchase from WNS. I have a "jenny" I bought a few years ago, and recently used it for rolling a single corrugation (can you have a corrugation on its own?) round the thin steel casing of my steam-wagon's ash-pan, though I've not mastered how to use it for flanging discs and cylinders.
