Could anyone direct me to where I can find useful "how to" information
for aluminum work. I need to wrap some windows, doors, soffits, etc. I
haven't used a brake or done any aluminum work in several yrs. I can't
find a good book on the subject anywhere. Thanks for your help.
I don't have a clue as to books and it has been many years for me also.
Just a couple of tips though.
When you have multiple bends in a strip, make a template for the markings.
I'd use a scrap of the aluminum and make a straight cut where the mark
should go, then an angled cut to it to remove material Just put the
template against the strip and make the marks with a pencil, bend at the
marks. You can also make one with the bends to have a match for them if
they are no 90 degrees.
Searching newsgroups through Google is often a good way to see what's
already been asked and answered:
The easiest way to get clear concise complete information is to hie
thee to your local library and take out one of those Time/Life books
(or equal). It'll have nifty pictures and step by step instructions.
