Dang Dave, those bends look true. I like it. You use a brake?



Nope. Made a cereal box cardboard pattern to get the bend locations. Clamped along the bend line with a hand clamp for wood working and just used raw muscle against a open wood surface to generate the sharp bends. For the large round bend around the cup, I did a series of hand bends over an "anvil" (my 3/4 diameter tool rest on my wood lathe). Just kept going back and forth closing the radius as I went.

Pretty soft aluminum but stiffened up well with the finished form.

PS. Missed your last couple postings, Nice work yourself.
