    Those things are usually made out of tool steel (very hard)and I don't see any way to a-fix blade to it , no set screw holes or anything..? Any part No. On it..?

    It's made for bending sheet metal, by hand me thinks...........Or it could be used in the rolling process of sheet metal. The rollers are missing.......The sheet metal just fits into the grove and the rollers take over.......

    There's a picture of what it bends. And a drive cleat that locks it together to another piece of duct work. And the other side is just a s-slip.

    I know sheetmetal

    My Dad had been a sheetmetal worker since 1959, before I was around.
    I can still remember being 4-5 years old,I would go to work with Dad on saturday when Mom was busy. He would set me up on a fabrication table in the shop tell me not to move,go over grab a 10 oz. Pepsi from the machine and use his snips to pop the cap off and hand it to me,i'd sit there and watch.:D

    I went to work full time during the summers when I turned 14 for the same company my Dad worked for,11 year later I was a HVAC contractor at 25,that's been 24 nearly 25 years ago...Where'd the time go??
