I have been asked how my jig accomplishes bending the top rail. Here is how I do it.

Set rail gauge to .200" and clamp to bending jig.



Gauge is set and ready.



Setting toprail to .200". Place flat against stop.



Flat is clamped and ready to press. You have to remove the rail gauge first.

No joke though that is a beautiful piece of work,I know I speak for all of us when I say it is the hard work of men like you that make it possible for us all.
You don't want to hear me play the fiddle!

Your design inspired me when you first posted it. I have tweaked it quite a bit but have not had time to build it. I am planning on building it out of hardened and ground A2 tool steel. Everything will locate off of the holes that are already on the flats, so there won't be a need for setting any distances prior to bending. Thanks for the inspiration.

Bama,
I was going to index everything off of the flat, but the design got real busy.......too many pins and holes to keep track of. Keep us updated!
