Yeah looks pretty good.

BTW, What did you ever come up with to use as a bending insert?

Thanks smile.gif
I had a real silicon bending insert, but it was slightly too big.. I tried sanding it, I tried lubing it up.. didnt really help.
I ended up putting a piece of string in the end of it and just pull it through, went MUCH easier vs pushing it smile.gif

The cable I used before was no good tongue.gif

Is there any information as to when US stores will have the monsoon hardline full bending kit back in stock? I think it's been about a month since I've seen them in stock anywhere. I'm assuming Monsoon ran out of stock at their facility. (?)

Thanks

Pretty sure amatthie meant the full kit, with the measuring rules & the heatgun & bending cord, etc, in additon to the mandrels, and it has been sold out at all US suppliers for a while now.
post #2346 of 4306
Yes I meant the full kit that Unicr0n mentioned.

I didn't want to wait either so I just bought the cutting and mandrel kit as I already own a heat gun.

I kinda want the kit but I want to pick out my own heat gun and quality of hardware tools.

As I've told everyone here, the best deal to get on a heat gun is through Harbor Freight Tools. I got mine for UNDER $10. All they sell are tools of all kinds, and mine has already paid for itself the first time I turned it on. It has two heat settings, and seems to be just as durable as the rest of them out on the market. Don't waste your money buying something because of a name brand. Get something that gets the job done reliably, for the least amount of money.
