I'm thinking about making a titanium wedge for a bot, something vaguely like what is in the D2 kits, and I'm just trying to figure out the best way to do it. (I've learned my lesson and I'm trying to plan ahead instead of buying a slab of metal and trying to figure out how to form it after the fact.) What would be the best way to make the bends for the sides of a wedge? Using a small hydraulic press? A bending brake?
I've heard of others trying this by taking a torch to the metal and hammering it in a vise with mixed results. Instead of trying to do something like that with basic tools to get an "okay" result, I'd be happy to make a small investment in an appropriate tool if I could use it multiple times and it would give me a better result. (I'm slowly building up a small bot-building workshop in my basement one tool at a time.)
