As above I am trying to bend some new doors for the camper. I bought myself a panbrake and can do the bending all right but having trouble with the mitres.
The doors have two 45deg bends on edge and then one Under at right angle, most of the new campers have the same design doors.

Can any one help me with this or direct me to a site. I don’t use computers as such so auto cad no good for me.

Cheers DD.

What is it you are actually trying to do or work out. I presume with reference to autocad you are trying to work something out.

There is not much to using a pan brake. An inside 45 degree angle is tighter than most can bend though. An outside 45 degree angle is just as easy as a 90 degree angle. Put up a pic of what you are trying to bend.

grave dig...
i think what your trying to do is double fold in the same direction all the edges so they look like a c (cross section) if you you need to mark out and cut the corners to suit the finished positon.
