2nd Ever Bend


Recommended Posts

As the title states, i don't train for bending, don't have nails etc. My brother gave me this metal rod (call it a nail for simplicitys sake). Its 6inches in length exactly and 6mm in diameter. No idea what type of steel it is but i wrapped it in a cloth and bent it in a U-shape pretty easily, i'm guessing my technique was nowhere near pretty, but i figured i'd just show the pics to maybe see if its an okay bend for a noob and how the stats of the rod measure up to IM nails (dont know their specifications). It was bent fully (U shape), so i'm quite pleased with myself lol.

Cant see your Pics. 6mm is slightly under 1/4", so probably a little easier for the most part.

For a real comparison, you will need to bend a 1/4" X 6" FBBC, IM Nail or Cold rolled steel bar. Even then, they can still vary. Probably a good bend for the first one, I started with stuff around 5.5mm and it was a bit of a challenge :)
