Bending progress

My brother and I have a bee in our bonnet for bending.

We’ve been studying the problem and brainstorming and we think we have most of the answers we need for me to finish my bending machine when I return to Ontario.

When I started the machine it was at the very beginning when I didn’t know about or have CNC machines so I was making everything by hand. Now, I know all about CNC, the associated electronics, bearings, linear bearings, other fabrication techniques and materials to use. So it will be fun to see if the machine comes to life early this year.

This machine will be used in my model plane project but of course it will be able to make parts for my art projects too. I think it will be interesting to make springs, clips and other wire parts consistently.
