Hossfeld Bender

This is the Basic startup class for using the Hossfeld Standard Model No. 2 Bender
in the Blacksmithing Area.

We will spend 15 minutes on basic safety and area requirements.
Then expect 45 minutes of hands on setup and shared bending time

We will supply some material to bend, but feel free to bring your own material
(I’m not saying you will be able to bend your material, but we will discuss the machine limitations)

I’m going to limit the number of students to 5 , so each person get enough hands on time to be able to feel comfortable using the Hossfeld bender

Students should bring their own gloves

The cost is $19.96 for Knox Makers members
