How close to the edge of the part are you trying to bend it? What radius are you looking for. I work in Cambridge and we have a press that could bend that as long if it's not to close to the edge. Although for you end use of the part some hammer marks might be a nice touch.
Oh, sweet. That'd save me tons of work. I have to measure it out more precisely tonight to see how the predrilled holes line up with the studs in the wall. I think the bend should be about 6 to 7 inches from the edge and I'm not too worried about bend radius.
Basically, the wall(s) I want to hang this track rail looks something like this... eagle eye view. door has nothing above it, just ceiling:
_s_ _ _ _s_ _ _ _s_ |s
Edit: So I've got an 8 ft steel flat. Studs are marked "s" at 6 inches, 24 inches, and 40 inches. The door opening is about 43 inches, so I'll need to bend it at about 4.5
inches on the short side. That part won't reach the next stud, so I'll use a butterfly anchor.
