I haven't used the bender too many times but quickly found out I need to make an adjustable support to keep the piece being bent 90 degrees to the roller. at least until the piece is pinched tight and bending starts . When bending the first bend it was about the middle so it was easy to see if it was tilted in the bender but when the second short bend it cocked a little so it was kind of bent up at the end , I got most back using a hammer so I'll need to remember it for next time .

No problem , guess there weren't many made . I'm tempted to try making those " wing extenions " next but not sure if the material is something special like some kind of spring steel or not .
Alc, did you ever actually make these wing extensions? If so, what material did you use? Any pics of those once done?
I am in need of some extensions and contemplated making some myself since none are to be found around here.

Never made them Still not sure if regular flat stock or maybe see if there's enough from the cultivator frame I cut up before
they're the same steel as the cultivator frame. I have a set. Then four tabs per side to keep them aligned and a 5/8" or so bolt to use with the clamp.
