Metal bending video

Here's a little video of me bending a chunk of 2" - 12 gauge steel tube by hand. This is one instance where having a little extra body mass is useful. 8^)

Someday I'll have to get a video of me falling on my ass when the jig breaks. 8-(

Despite my joking about getting hurt, it's a serious danger. I've spent the past week recovering from a wrenched knee caused by a clamp that slipped when I didn't expect it. And even though I'd prepared a clear path for falling, I managed to stumble backwards before I fell, so smacked my head on a heavy steel cart. Luckily, the cart was not damaged.
