I am so pumped with my progress on the Gold Nail. The most damage I have ever done to it is getting it to a 7 degree wobble. At the end of the workout today, I descided to try one, thinking it was goi

Last training before bending the 50lb box of 60d nails. I bent 250 in 1 hour and 12 minutes. Here is a pic.

Gripmas 2018 was a great time. Always great to see old friends and make new ones. My body is beat up and sore today. My main goal was to top David Horne’s list for bending the most pairs of 6” nails t

Thanks! I am having a lot of fun with these long bars right now. I may enjoy this style of bending more than any other style.

3/4” x 31 7/8” A36 long bar attempt today. I blew through the kink and most of the sweep fairly fast, but needed a hair bit more to crush. Not in the cards today. Below is a pic of the bar and video of the attempt. Also, did a Horrido A2 bolt reverse. That video is below too.

Thanks Carl. I think I just needed 1/2 to 1" more and I would have been able to crush it. Next time.

12 x 500 mm (1/2" x 19.7") rebar finally completed after many failed attempts. The steel is tough like CRS and springy. Hardest part was getting it past 90 degrees with a "through the leg" technique. After that the leg crush did the rest with a high effort.

This Colossus bend really shows how much I have improved at long bar bending in the past few months. This bar is from DHWOG. I was sent it about 2 years ago. I have tried the bar multiple times over those 2 years and the bar never budged. I bent a different Colossus bar in January and it was an all out fight, long bend. In January, I still could not budge the Colossus in this photo, it is much harder than the first Colossus I bent. Now, I bent the tough Colossus in 5 minutes, that I could never budge before. Very happy with this improvement! Video:
