    Bending Jig

    This idea is for bending binding strips for guitars, but could be adapted to be used in general woodworking especially the plane blade cutter for the drill press.

    I sometimes think that I am more impressed with the jigs and templates folks make than the actual project..

    I am positively sure that I will never make a guitar body. I am virtually sure that I will not do any plastic inserts. In spite of that, I found the video very interesting.
    Thanks for showing,

    Enjoy,
