    I have 2 of the old Himor frame benders and only have the original steel formers, which are indestructible and just need to be rubbed with steel wool and oiled occasionally.
    The steel formers are much heavier than the modern aluminium formers, but I much prefer the old type.

    I've got my dad's old hillmor, about twenty years old. It's getting tougher bending 22mm, but that might be my age! I've also got his old tripod bender, bending 28mm is great fun.
