Re: Cold bending 1 piece cranks?
Nice job, I like the idea on the jig
I've had to staighten some bent cranks in the past due to accidents. Alway's layed the bike down on some 4" blocks, making sure the other side of the crank was supported, and slid a piece of water pipe over the end of the crank. I'd use one hand towards the end of the pipe, pulling up, and the other down were the pipe was slid onto the crank, pressing down. Or both hands on the end of the pipe, pulling up, and one foot or both feet, if possible, were the pipe was slid onto the crank. Did my best to avoid damaging bearings. They came out straight, and the bears still good.
