Not a problem Bear, being an electrician I understand.  Now if we could get your woodworks to stop calling deck boards 5 quarter thick.  IT'S AN INCH AND A QUARTER!!!!  LOL
 
When dealing with gauge numbers.  The higher the number the smaller or thinner the material.  So if a break is good for 28 gauge it WILL NOT bend 18 gauge.  Find a HVAC shop to bend it up for you
OOOOPS, sorry----That's what I get for being a woodworker all my life.

The reason I looked up what a siding brake would handle was I thought that kind of metal would be too thick for a siding brake, but then I ran into the trick metal-working number system

LOL---Good point !

Took me awhile to get that too, and I was born into it !

I used to buy some 8 quarter too!

But most of the cabinet wood I bought was 4/4, S2S, FAS, LNRO. (Hint that's all one item)
