Larger size iron developed in conjunction with the one time tutor at Newark college Mal Brady. The shape manages to combine a diverse variety of radii, incorporating one very flat side and some very tight radii. It is essentially an aerofoil shape! This is produced from a solid aluminium billet and measures 127mm (5″) x 150mm (6″).
Large “Brady” Bending Iron
This shape was developed with my colleague at Newark college Mal Brady and incorporates more diverse radii than other shapes. It is essentially an “aerofoil” shape incorporating one flatter side and one broad curved side, the ends are also very different too with one tight radius and one broader radius. Over time this has proved to be a very popular shape and is available in larger sizes because of its wide application. This shape is also available in 250mm length and in 3” and 6” versions.
The iron is produced from a solid billet of 6082 T6 aluminium bar and fitted with three 350watt heaters (making a total power of 1050watt) facilitating an even distribution of heat, a quick heat up time and adequate maintenance of temperature in use. The 250mm high irons are fitted with three 500watt heaters (making a total power of 1500watt). There is a choice of 230v or 110v power, both being the same wattage.
Beneath the iron is a piece of insulation which prevents excessive heat penetrating into the mounting box. This mounting box is custom made from 1/8” (3.2mm) thick aluminium which is TIG welded and in turn mounted on a base of 18mm birch ply. There is a choice of a tried and tested analogue thermostat (standard) or a digital thermostat to control the temperature. Power is supplied through a braded flex to resist the effects of heat; this is available in standard length of 1.5metre (standard length) or 2.5 metre (extra length).
There are many other shapes and sizes of irons available and I am happy to construct any iron to your particular requirements if that is necessary click here
