As I stated, there is a Summit here in town, so the dies are just a short drive away.
Thanks for that info.
IIRC, in benders there is always a little play in the set up that you have to get used to. As Im to understand it, you have to pull the handle till it starts to get tension, then base your measurement/ degree off of THAT. So if you are at 0* when you set the piece to be bent in the bender (loosely), you then pull the handle to tighten everything up. From there, you START you degree read...so when you take the "slop" out say it reads 3*...if you wanna bend a 90* angle, you would bend to 93*.
At least that is how I was told with some of these manual benders.
