Bent my first seat hoop at lunch. The one on the left was first and kinked, the one on the right came out perfect :D

How did you do it? Hot or cold? Sand packed or empty?

How did the first one end up crooked?
I've bent hundreds upon hundreds of hoops on the JD3 and never seen that happen.

That die has been modified by someone and the tubing slipped at about 120į. I've since purchased a new die.

Gotcha that makes a little more sense!
Glad you got it figured out.
