Today I bent my first 60p nail in the basement. I was pretty excited and took one upstairs to show the wife. I bent one again. That is my best bent and I pulled it off twice! Up to now my best bend was a 40p nail.

It wasn't the strictist form. I start Slim Style and then I rotate the nail in my grip to start a push/pull type of motion. The whole bend was with my hands and forearms away from my body.

I'm pretty psyched. I didn't plan on getting this until I tackled te #3; however, I'm not upset. :D

I need to maintain this and work on a strict Slim Style bend. I also gotta go to Home Depot and buy a ton of 60p nails to practice on. Damn. :D

Maybe your wife can take a few pics of your bending style for the rest of us to enjoy! Congrats on your progress... I'll be making a trip to Home Depot tomorrow to look at some nails, since I want to get into nail bending myself. :tongue

I have cut off the head and point from 60D nails in an effort to avoid them digging into my palms, but this reduced the length to around 5 1/2''. I believe that 60D nails are harder to bend than an Ironmind blue. I only try nailbending about once every 2 weeks. I am not hooked on it. I enjoyed it back in High School and used to impress the other kids. Nails are made of harder metal than they were back in the day.

I'll see what she can do, she's the computer guru of the household.


Wrap that nail up in a hand towel, or do it the way Tommy does: cut an Ace bandage in half and fold up each half. It makes a good hand pad.

Let it be known, I am not saying in any way I am good at bending. Even a blind squirell finds a nut in the forest once in a while. I got 2 60p's today. I tried a 40p later and I didn't finish the bend. My hands have had enough for now.
