Default Bending Wire Struts

I'm looking for someone who bends wire struts. I need a new set of 5/32" struts for my mechanical landing gear. I tried using my K & S wire bender, but I cannot make it work on the coil part.

Is there anyone out there who can bend wire like that?

K & S has 2 sets of benders. One is uniquely designed for coil bending. You should have no problems with 5/32 wire with it. If you have no luck anywhere else I would be happy to do it for you. You will be responsible for sending me the materials and the return postage. My time and my use of my K&S bender is free.
