A must have for best results

If you're a perfectionist like me, you'll want this tool to create specific radius bends repeatably. Follow the directions that come with it, making gradual tighter curves until shape desired is obtained. I really can't imagine bending the rail without one. Bending the rail with an aluminum core around an object rather than with this tool may be possible but it's not going to be as consistent or as easy. Mark your PC and PT of curves on rail with pencil and run rail back and forth keeping rail straight and stop at your marks when they reach the rubber coated wheel and you'll get great results. Don't forget to check the alum. core position before bending and don't run the rail all the way to the very end in the machine as the stiff core will show through in the plastic rail where it was unsupported. Bends ideally will terminate 6 inches or more before the end of the rail to allow you to run the rollers on core supported sections of the rail.
