Bending jig, top view
This is the top view of the jig I was instructed to make.
The pair of pegs on the right are spaced just far enough apart for the 16 ga silver to fit between. I used a strip of cardboard about the same thickness to figure out where to put the left-hand peg (the one you fold the strip around).
I made the whole jig 4" long for reasons that will become apparent later.
