This is a brand new indexable bending jig for bending iron or any other material you are forging. Bend hooks, eyes or any other forge work you want with consistency.
Comes with 8 dies made of 3/4" thick 1045 steel, in 1", 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2", 3", 4", 5", and 6" diameters. Each die has a series of holes spaced from it to accept all common sized stock. Just pick the diameter bend you want, put the 1/2" hardened dowel pin in the center hole to accept the die and put the other 1/2" dowel pin in the hole that best fits the stock you want to bend. Then just heat up your piece and bend it around the die. You can mark the base with soap stone if you wish for a reference stop to make repeated bends all the same.
With this set includes the 9" diameter, 3/4" thick base indexing plate, the 8 dies, two hardened dowel pins and a 1" piece of square stock to be welded onto the bottom of the base indexing plate to accept a one inch hardy hole in your anvil. If you require a different size square stock for your hardy hole, let me know and I will replace the 1" with the size you require. I will also weld this on for you if you do not have access to a welder, just let me know at check out otherwise I'll just send the kit as is.
********** PLEASE LET ME KNOW AT CHECKOUT HOW YOU WANT THE JIG (1" OR DIFFERENT SIZE SQUARE STOCK AND WELDED ON OR NOT), SO I CAN GET IT IN THE MAIL TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE **********
This jig also works well in the post vise and the square stock allows you to rotate the jig to put it in the best position for the bend you are going to do. I probably use mine in the post vise more than the anvil, but it gives you the option to use either one.
I have sold many of these and everyone that I've talked to says they wouldn't be without one! One guy even said you couldn't pry it from his cold, dead hands!!

"I have been searching for a good bending jig for 25 years. I counted 4 different jigs that I have bought over the years,
and I even have one that I made myself. After using your jig today, I know I will never use the others again.
Thank you so very much for making this elegant set available."
SHIPPING SIDE NOTE: Shipping to Canada would be no problem, BUT the cheapest rate the US Post Office offers is $32.95 US Funds for their international medium flat rate box. The only problem with that is they only allow up to a maxiumum of 20 pounds and the jig weighs roughly 30 pounds. So, all I can think would be to mail it in two separate international medium flat rate boxes at a charge of $32.95 each for a total of $65.90 US Funds. The only other option would be a regular/non-descript brown box for $99.75 US Funds. These shipping charges would also apply to Mexico. For any other country, please contact us.
