I don't know how good the quality is, so you're on your own, but Harbor Freight 
http://www.harborfreight.com    has a couple of inexpensive brakes available.  
There's an 18" model
that has an advertised  capacity of 16 gauge for $19.99, (item #39103-0AJA), 
and a 30" model for up
to 17 gauge for 49.99, (item #41311-0AJA).  This supposedly would handle most 
body patch panel work
which is done primarily on 18 gauge (.050" thick).  Gee, I might risk spending 
the $20 for the odd
piece that needs a 90 degree bend in it.  Maybe more effective than hammering 
it over the corner of
the work bench!  H-freight BTW has free shipping if you order $50 minimum.  
Usually there's just a
small handling charge applied.
