    Bending Iron

    My homemade bending iron :



    A chromed table leg pressed oval.
    An halogen bulb inside, with its dimmer.
    A smaller tube on top for tighter radii.
    A removable temperature sensor for ovens.

    Note the wooden basement box, with the holes for the clamps.
    Notice also the tile piece between wood and metal for insulation.
    Works like a charm.

    Note that I plug it in the wall through a differential circuit breaker.
    I never like playing with water and electricity ....
