Conical Bend #2
I finished the second conical bend and didn't crack the skin, which is great news.. But for some reason I don't think this bend is quite as good as the first one, but it still looks pretty good. Actually, I can tell you the two bends are different, but I can't tell you which one is better, its kind of wierd..
Anyway Here are some pictures of the process that I used and the finished product. Note, I put some tape on the backrivet plate, which protected the metal in the focus area of the bend.
