“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”
A DIFFICULT BEND: Using a heat blanket between the wood and the bending aid (SPBS) to heat both sides of the wood at the same time.
A cast aluminium, teardrop-shaped bending iron designed by Irving Sloane. This updated version has a chrome-like finish, great for sliding the wood against the iron. The iron itself is 6 1/2" long and 3 3/16" in cross section. Width in cross section is 2 1/8" at the widest point. The small side of the iron is particularly useful for small radius bending. The variable heat setting is helpful for finding the optimum heat setting at which various woods will bend. It's mounted on a hardwood base that has a large hole drilled through it for clamping either vertically or horizontally to your bench. The best bending iron around!
The 220v version of our bending iron comes with an International style 2-prong plug. The International Adaptor Kit (SPBLP) will accept this plug and adapt it to almost every country's plug configuration.
CAUTION: Never leave this bending iron on high heat for more than one minute as it may damage the heating element.
Aluminum Heating Bands (sold separately) For bending laminates and purflings, we offer these aluminum bands to use with the Bending Iron (SPBPS). These bands, which fit the pipe, support the bend and help transfer heat.
Bending Aid (sold separately) Our stainless steel bending aid makes bending on a pipe or iron a breeze. The hinged handles give you more control and a cooler grip. We still recommend that you use gloves when bending to avoid accidental burns.
