Re: Help me design a new Grab Iron Bending Jig


Nelson Moyer
 

I’ve made styrene jigs for straight, drop, half drop, and corner grab irons as well as straight top mounted uncoupling levers, but I haven’t figured out a jig design for bending bottom mounted uncoupling levers like those from Detail Associates. I’ve bent several pairs by hand, but it’s hard to bend two that are exactly alike. I’ve read Lester’s post on bending grabs where he uses measurements marked on an index card as a pattern. Has anybody figured out a styrene gig arrangement that works?

Here’s a recent tip from the MRH forum.

Maybe this can inspire something different yet versatile.
