Hi Bob and thanks for the reply.
i build birdhouses and i was thinking about doing some roofs in copper and i thought the best way would to buy a break to bend the copper or metals.
i have been using barn steel on some of the houses but because of the profile on the steel it doesn,t look right when its near a hip or valley. too hard to seal all the seams properly.

Hi Bob
I think a 3 1/2 ft break would be perfect. the sheets are 3 ft x 8 ft
the largest house i am working on now is 9 ft long .
the roof will be a cottage roof with dormers .7 different roofs

i,ll post a pic when i find one.
thanks again.
