    That is definitely another way around it (heating it) and easy. Probably much easier than trying to source different materials.

    Maybe @acerc will let us know. I may or may not get one. Depends on how well I can straighten back the right side of the Cub gear :concern:.
    Besides....Already blew my allowance trying to get that cool saw ;).
  5. They say I'll have it by Friday. If it is half as good as it look's, for what I need, I'll be happy.

  6. Ok Fella's, the Universal bender showed up. First impressions was when I picked the box up and thought wholly crap. I figured by the low price it might be a very light weight and low grade piece of equipment, no where near capable of bending 5/16 piano wire. After opening I see why it is heavy, this is one nice tool. The design kind of reminds me of a mechanical bender I used many years ago. It has a number of sized circular blanks as well as a couple angled blanks. I have no doubt this little tool will bend anything I throw it's way. Thanks @49dimes for finding and sharing it with us.
    Forgive the hideous paint table used to photo on but all my others are over flowing.

    Do a short video of it working.
  8. Can't right now, busy getting other things done. I have one week to finish preparing before Tog Gun and the following week Joe Nall.
    And in the mix of these things the wife and I are nursing her mother through the last days of a battle with cancer. Might not make either of those events depending on how it goes with her.
