I have a Photo Etch Bending tool and it works very well with photo-etched Running Board Braces from Yarmouth Model Works. I fabricated my first photo-etched ladder recently and used a MN004 UMM™ 3D Photo Etch Elbow Bender which worked very well. I then soldered the steps in place with the help of a Yarmouth Model Works Ladder Assembly Jig. Note: if you purchase one of these assembly jigs, you will need to purchase the bolts and nuts as indicated on the website. However, I could not find 6-32 x 1/2" bolts with the head the size needed by the jig. I ended up using the closes bolts I could find and using 5-minute epoxy to hold them in place.
