Again it is important to apply force near the bend. There is a sweet zone that can be found with a bit of experience.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

What do these brackets fit onto?

More importantly, how many do you make? This seems like a painstakingly long process. For one or two maybe, but 10s or 100s, I'd look at making a stamp.

I don't know exactly what they are for. These brackets among several other parts I am making are part of window modification. I sometimes don't know what the purpose is of what I am making. I usually only ask if I encounter difficulty and am looking for a way out.

In this case I was asked for two brackets, he may need a few more later. You may be overestimating the amount of time this takes. The tool is simply a block of aluminum that is milled on two sides at 6.5 degrees each with two corners having a 3mm radius. It takes less than thirty seconds to hammer each bend. By far, most of the time in making these brackets is in trimming.

There is almost always more than two ways to make anything. For me the decision is made by balancing available materials, time, skills, tools, required accuracy and quantity of parts. The choices made will change as experience increases. I have in the past and sometimes still do investigate different options.

I understand. From your OP, I was thinking you needed to make MANY of these. For 2, I'd do it the same way. Thank you.

Cutting the notch. It's important here to start the cut at a point farthest away from the vise. There is a higher risk of chatter and damage if the cut is started near the vise and ended farthest away.
