Bender for steel edging?

Has anyone seen or used a bender for steel edging? I want to find a way to make it follow the curves of the ground (up and down)

I use 4"x3/16" steel. I'm wanting to figure out how to bend it on the "edge".

The only real luck I have had is using a torch and heat shrinking the edge.

I'm kicking around the idea of a bender that locks into the stake pocket on the trailer.


Thanks in advance.

I'm wanting to know as well. In the past we made pie cuts and bent it.

You need to build a compact 3 head roller. I will see if I can find a pic.

Why not drop down to 1/8"? That sounds heavy

You are right, it is 1/8". Not sure what I was thinking earlier.

The roller would work for bending the flat face, I'm trying to bend it on the edge.

I've got a sketch, but not on this computer.

You would need a guide and nose and cove mandrel for the edge is all
