Aluminum Angle Bundle 17

I have tried a few methods to open angle past 90 degrees.  The 4lb hammer method was very tedious for some of the longer pieces so I used the bench vise and WD-40 to squeeze the angle open.  This would have worked much better with a chunk of steel or something to squeeze against, but I could have wasted a bunch of time finding a suitable chunk.  Instead I stacked a bunch of pieces of scrap aluminum together–this was a pain, but now I’m done :-)  On the plus side, it was very easy to control the angle of the squeeze over the entire length of angle.
