Welcome to Bag of Tricks Software!

We are the developers of the Sheet Metal Bender and Interpolator apps for Android and Blackberry smart phones.

The Sheet Metal Bender app helps press brake operators and sheet metal designers determine the correct bend allowance, bend compensation and setback for their parts. It includes a quick reference for standard gauges of steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum.
