Here's one of the blueprint mysteries: How do you bend a 3/4" angle 3/16" thick to a 7 degree angle?? I don't know how you hold this small bracket to bend it much less what size press is needed to perform the operation. We moved up to a 1" angle with 3/16" thickness, clamping it on and angle in the vice and hoped there was enough surface to keep it from moving in the jaws. Both ends of the bracket were machined square.
