An Idea for Making Bend Points

I really like using alligator clip leads with my bending. Cheap, easy, awesome.

Here's an idea to pack lots of bend clip points into a small space using rigid metal wire. Hopefully it's useful to someone.

Use some thin rigid metal wire. I like galvanized STEEL.

Cut out a U-shape about a finger's length .

Do a double loop around a pen or something not very thick.

Use your thumb to hold it in place.

Hold the pen steady and twist it!

Remove the pen and here you have it, a nice fishing lure looking thing.

It's a great connection point for alligator clips.

Drill small holes in your instrument.
