Wing Spars
Hi all, new guy here. I need to bend some 2024 T-3 AL spar webs for my homebuilt project. They are 8"long, about 9" high in the shape of a channel. The flanges are about 1.5" wide with one side bent to 90 degrees and the other at 82 degrees. These webs (I njeed to make 4) need to be bent very accurately to fit the ribs. I live in Seattle and need some advice on how to do this or the name of someone I could employ to do this. Any advice is welcome. I have experience hand forming and lots of experiece riveting but little experience using a 8' brake. Look forwadd to learning from the experts at this site.

Can you upload a profile sketch?
I think you can bend them quite accurately on an 8 foot brake.
I could bend up some samples and post the results.
