hope i am in the right newgroup. i am trying to bend a 3/8" metal rod
into a hook on the top. is there anything or a tool i can use to do
this. i looked at home depot and they had a tool but it would noe bend
into a hook and they had nothing else. any help and information would be
appricated. or if i am in the wrong spot please direct me to the correct
lane wrote: (clip) How big of radius of bend are you looking at? Are you
trying to do just one or many?
Also, please tell us whether the "hook" needs to be esthetically pleasing,
or does it just have to hang from an overhead pipe? If all you need is a
simple hanger, you may be able to do it by inserting the rod in a hole, and
bending it by hand.
Pretty much wire bending is wire bending. The processes used in bending
small springs also works for springs with wire 1' in diameter. There are
limitations in the amount of curve you can put inot a wire cold or hot and
those limits are in percentage as well as actual numbers.
A jig for the bending that you desire and a bit of heat on the wire can make
the whole thing happen supprisingly fast.
Pipe can also be done but it is often wise to fill the insides with
something to keep the pipe from kinking, something that it likes to do when
not fully supported, with formed molds for holding the pipe.
