Create perfectly curved cuff bracelets in just a few seconds with this handy bending tool.

Note: Do any stamping or metalworking to the metal/wire prior to forming the cuff.
Cut your desired length of metal sheet or wire and place one end of the strip into the notch on the tool.
Using your hand, bend metal around the curved arch on first side of the tool.

Repeat at the other end.

Note: Either hold the flat end of tool in your hand or place it in a bench vise to free up both hands during forming. Recommended for use with 18- to 26-gauge gold, sterling silver, brass, aluminum and copper metals.
