Bill has worked with brass much more than I have and would know more tricks.

In my situation bending 260 .015 is not providing an attractive enough corner so switching to 360 which ironically arrived today and sitting on the counter still in packaging.

On a separate situation working with 3/32 260 flat rod. Bends greater than 90 become difficult and with leverage can get 180 bend although once metal snapped. Annealed cherry red with MAPP it is softer and can get 180 degree bend but do have edges flare out.

The 260 is McMurray brass. Other manufacturers may have a more workable 260.
