aluminum is easy to bend

"Bending 1/8" aluminum, I imagine even 3000 serious, would be pretty hard for a nearly 4' bend. So I was thinking. What would be stronger. Bending the aluminum in a large radius (like over 1/2"), welding extruded 1" angle to the edge that needs it on the top of the plate. or simply fastening the extruded 1" angle to the edge with machine screws as well."

i spent 10 minutes looking through your blog and did not see your reference. didn't have time to watch all your videos.
so I'll just say aluminum is very easy to bend, especially if you anneal it by heatin it up.
