It's great to weld but it would be better if we were able to bend it too.Aside if all ideas about new machines that came up in the last days, I have not seen anything regarding a bending machine or jig nor some kind of shear. On my side, I have not find a good open-source bending machine plan yet.It would also be great if someone could come up with a safe plan to build a stick and/or a spot welder. I have been given a stick welder and an homemade shunt that prevent sticking. I will try to reverse engineer it next winter before
killing myself whilelearning how to weld… :-)
