Side bending

A cartridge heater arrived today for my side bender.

Cartridge heater from ebay

The design is from this video

Wish me luck :-)

I've researched plenty of home made bending jigs and this design suits my needs until I can afford a silicone heating blanket. Then I'll also need to build the bending form to suit similar to this

This is going to be my next build along with mounting my router in a table

I wired it all together and burnt myself then quickly unplugged it lol

Later I'll test the Temperature controller after I get an oven thermometer to check it.
