With the turnbuckle method, I mentioned you could engrave 5 lines just wide enough apart to where the center of the U was half the width U apart. Then do five 1° bends. The third 1° bend would be the center of the bend. I'd also use a heat gun while doing this. You should then have some nice symmetrical bends without any kinks. The engraved marks could then be filled and sanded out.Thats funny...I made one of those already with the addition of parachute cord that I sling onto one side of the frame and reverse the end to press against one side of the frame an the other side and then pull the trigger to spread them now so I am not totally stuck without another set of hands to help...lol.
Haven't had to use it yet, but as always, it's just a matter of time...lol.
