The Lion E Plus is a brand-new line of electric, open-throat cleat benders now available from this Missouri company. Designed using a 115-volt, one horsepower, 20-amp motor, it accepts up to 20-gauge aluminum and sheet metal for bending 24- or 30-inches at a time. The electric design makes the unit easier to install in the shop or for use on the job-site, company officials say.
