Thanks jaka. Here is the final product. I wasn't too sure if the wing nuts would apply sufficient pressure turning by hand. But it worked out. I can make a tool to turn tighter if needed. I didnít have any 2Ē scrap aluminum. So I flipped the bending form and tried a 90* bend. I made about an 80* bend. Flipping the bending form is for thinner metal; ⅛Ē stock could not go 90*. Iím well pleased with this bender. Now Iíll bend my first landing gear. Drawing it out now.
