What is the smallest ID for a 180 degree bend of 1/4&rdquo; SS? The website indicates 1/2&rdquo; but the product instructions say: &ldquo;NOTE: The Center Pin may be used without a Die to create a 3/16&rdquo; radius bend&rdquo;. Can you please clarify? Thanks.&nbsp;

Asked by: Tony
Never mind. I also see in the product instructions that the center pin diameter is 0.38&rdquo;, which is very close to 6/16&rdquo;, so a radius of 3/16&rdquo;. The smallest die gets the diameter of the center pin to 0.5&rdquo;.&nbsp;

How can I set this tool up to make exact duplicates? Can stops be added or do you recommend a different tool?

Asked by: PatV
To make duplicate parts you could put a mark on the base of the tool where you're pulling the handle, or once you get the exact bend you could easily drill a hole in the base and put a small bolt in the base that will stop the handle at the exact spot time after time.

Can you bend 3/16 stainless steel rod round to a simple L shape? And can you accurately bend In the same place every time to make lots of identical ones ?

Asked by: Annie123
Our Rod Forming tool will bend 3/16 Stainless, as for the L shape, the tightest radius using this tool would be 1/2 inch.To make identical bends you will need to make up some type of a jig so that you can start and finish your bend at the same spot every time.
