“Tightening up the bender can mean several different things. It could be as simple as tightening reference number 7, however the tool could be loose in a few other places that I have indicated with the red circles.
• If the latch is loose it could be reference number 7 again or the wave washer (# 5 is worn or missing).
• It could be the bending shoe which would mean the roll pin (# 2) or the hole on the entire handle is worn or defective.
• The bending form on the upper handle assembly could be loose, in which case again the tool is either worn or defective tightening would not be possible.
• The link that connects the bending handle to the form could be loose, in which case the same thoughts I stated above would apply.
