PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS THE STRETCHING OUT OR STRIPPING OF THE EYEBOLTS IS NOT COVERED UNDER THIS LIMITED
This section pertains to Bender owners who have eyebolts that are not welded. G series Benders 1-3 (discontinued).
If one of the nuts
falls out of an eyebolt, don't try to pop it back in and continue to use the bender in this manner. What has happened is the eyebolt has stretched open just
enough and has lost tension so that it will no longer be able to retain the nut. This is caused by one or both of the following...
1. Uneven tension on both sides of the block. Even if you never loosen the nuts on the bottom of the block (that hold the eyebolts into the block), you must check them occasionally to be sure they
are both tightened evenly. Don't crank down on one side all the way, then move to the other side and tighten. Tighten them evenly, going back and forth between them until they are both
These eyebolts are heavy duty and were chosen specifically for their tensile strength, but uneven stress can cause failure. Same thing when you are changing the block unit over to ring bending. Be
sure you are using even tension when tightening those nuts on the underside of the block. Same goes for tightening down the roller unit. EVEN tension on both sides of the rollers. If they aren't even
you get crooked bends and also have the potential for eyebolt failure.
2. When you are changing out roller sizes, be sure you are putting the eyebolts back in their exact same positions. In the 2nd gen benders, the nut sits inside of the eyebolt where it is flush on one
side and protrudes slightly on the other side. You want to keep the flush sides together. If they are put back together unevenly, you will again have the issue of uneven tension and the potential for
eyebolt failure. In 3rd generation benders, you don't want the serrated sides of the nuts to touch each other or they will bind up. The serrated side of the nuts must face away from each
other when changing out roller sizes.
I personally have literally bent thousands of pieces of flatware and have never had an eyebolt failure.
We had a customer contact us after they had tried to replace one on their own and even though it really didn't fit properly, kept using it. It caused a second eyebolt failure. They replaced that one.
That went on to cause the upper ones to fail as well. Now they were faced with 4 eyebolt failures and finally contacted us.
If you do experience eyebolt failure, DON'T continue to use it, you will just cause failure in all the other ones. We will replace them at $20/pair, plus shipping.
There's is only one company that makes this particular eyebolt, so chances are you won't be able to find it in your local hardware store.
This section pertains to ALL Flatwearable Bracelet and Ring Bender
owners. Any model of our discontinued G series Benders.
Stripping of the eyebolts is not covered under your warranty as it is due to improper use of the Bender. If you are experiencing stripping of your
eyebolts, then most likely you are over-tightening the nuts. This causes stress on the threads, which in turn strips out the bolt. If you are experiencing slipping of the silverware
during bending which is prompting you to over-tighten the nuts, stop. To prevent slipping, either bend the silverware down on the back, or clamp on a vise grip to the piece in the back.
Both of these methods will keep the silverware from slipping back under the roller during bending. Stripping can also be caused by uneven tension on both sides of the Tback. Be sure you
are tightening each side equally. Don't crank down on one side all the way, then move to the other side and tighten. Tighten them evenly, going back and forth between them until they are both
