Looks great, maybe do a how to on a new post. I m sure that a lot of folks would like to try and make one
Are the folded sides soldered together after he bend or are they just made tight.
Did you use a brake to do the bending or a vice?
Great Suggestion I will start a new how to thread shortly.
At this stage I have only rudimentary tools so had to make do with bending them in a vice. The sides are all folded tight and no soldering.
I will post the plans I made aswell.
The cheapie bending brake at Harbor Freight works pretty nicely on short bends like this (at least 2 of them anyway). a more sophisticated bending brake with segmented fingers works better, and can do all four bends, but a lot more money.
