Default Aluminum bending brake for aircraft parts

Hello all
I was having trouble figuring out how to bent the lower leading edge to my elevator trim tab and came up with this. Let me know what you think!

Quite fancy. Let us know if you come across other times it was handy to have. I went far more low tech and bent that portion of the tab with my hands.
