Default 3/4 angle

Just gonna go and bevel the 2x4, but reading ahead:

The 3/4 aluminum angle called out for bending this- was it included in the kit?

I see you mentioned angle iron.... I happen to keep on hand a few lengths of mild steel guage bent into 1"x1" angle on a giant press(for general purpose non-aviation fabrication...).

Would anyone see a problem with substituting that for these skin bends? The way I read it looks like these get discarded along with the block.
