I would like to bend a long edge (about 500mm) of a brass sheet (either 0.5mm or 1mm) into a U-shape.
I understand that brass is best bent warm. Is this achievable at home (without large machines)? Is it possible to bend it in sections
The instructions here
don't mention heating and don't easily adapt to larger edges (500mm), as the strength required is probably too large.
(I am using the sheet as a drawer and would prefer the bent edge over an edge protector, which would stop things from sliding out easily.)
