    metal bar roller

    as in the title, me and my dad have been looking into making gates, security bars for windows, iron railings etc and are looking for a metal bar roller that must be able to bend 8mm bars for the gates etc

    does any body know where there is 1 for sale or where im likely to get 1 from?

    i have tried ebay and there is nothing on there thats right for the job.

    thanks in advance

    As in cast-iron bars??? It's been a while since i did engineering science, but much bending with a 8mm thick cast iron will lead to mess.... Unless it's tool steel or something it will probably snap..... Just going from memory, i could be wrong..... Ring up some local metal workers and ask them, because most of them would do the bending for ya
