Default Re: Cold bending 1 piece cranks?

Nice result.

You mention using "low heat" in a prior attempt. What was the heat source? Propane torch? MAPP gas torch? Oxy-Acetylene torch? Also, what kind of tip on the torch?

If using heat, shouldn't I just be able to slip a pipe over the crankarm and bend to desired angle (no jig required)?
