First attempt with my Harbor Freight scroll bender. Wife digs it, but I already see where it needs to be improved. Oh well thatís what version 2 is for!

I have made a ton of extra money with that same bender. I made grappling hooks for equipment recovery for the oil and gas industry.

Nice. For the price those little Harbor Freight benders are hard to beat.

To do scrolls, you have to get the additional scroll attachment. The scroll is only offered online and has to be ordered as far as Iím aware. The compact bender is in the store though.

the small curls could be a little tighter - i'm guessing that is what is bothering you too!

Otherwise, looks like a storebought one!
