IMG_2118 Here is our FoxBender, with the first side being bent to shape.  The side has been wetted, and is being heated with a heat blanket between two sheets of steel, which hold the heat in.  We’ll leave the side in the bender for about 1/2 hr, then we’ll re-heat it, before clamping the side into the mold.
