Jig

Jig for bending outer shell built using nichrome wire 38SWG / 0.15mm from Ebay An ATX power supply to heat the wire (Use 12V connection), MDF for the board and a spring to keep the wire taut as it heats up. The shell needs to be held above wire by a couple of mm during the heating process

Testing

Bending the outer cover, the cover wasn’t directly parallel to the wire causing one end to slightly overheat
