The possibilities are endless with this bender and it is user friendly. I would let them know the more you use it the more of an expert you become. It's great for the person who wants to just dabble or for someone who what's to sell the end product. I would let them know it's the best on the market.
I simply love mine. It is easy to use. Suzanne does awesome tutorials on using her products. She shares new ideas with everyone. She is great to talk with when you talk to her and share your ideas with her(which I have done the screw hold down on the plate which she implemented to her product).
I have the 6 G bender and then bought the bending press. The press is sooo much easier to use and can be used for so much more. I love it. Worth the money!
I have all of the sizes of attachments for the bracelets and rings. I also have the Flattening tool. I call it the attitude adjuster. I use all of them when making my jewelry. If you are going to invest, don't skimp. You can't "make do" Also, you may think practicing on stainless steel is a good option, but it is a different animal from silver plated flatware. Invest a little money and practice on silver plated. Always take a magnet with you when shopping for silver plated flateware. People will tell you their pieces are silver plated when they are stainless. The magnet doesn't lie and it will connect to the stainless flatware. Use the 16 gauge jump rings. Well worth the extra time. Do you research on reconnecting the jump rings and practice before you sell a piece, you don't want to sell something that will come apart. Also don't forget your Mag-Locks. The BEST magnets on the block!
The Bender has made my life so much easier. If you are bending flatware any other way, you are definitely wasting a lot of time and energy. When you purchase your Bender, you are not left out in the cold.... Suzanne is always doing help videos and explaining, looking for improvements, and better, more efficient methods of bending. She is always available to answer questions and listen to new ideas. Thanks, Suzanne.
Don't hesitate, because Suzanne is very generous and she takes care of her customers and in addition, there are beautiful tutorials for us to improve and she gives good stuff.
I absolutely love my Bender press, I probably would have quit if I hadn't bought it. It is so easy to use and makes so many neat things, I love all the things that Flatwearable sells, I am in awe at how easy Suzanne makes things look, and how creative she is.
It is a wise investment they can create beautiful pieces that can be a good source of income and have the means to create pieces that can become family heirlooms
The Flatwearable Silverware Bending Press is the most amazing tool I have ever used.... and that it's the most versatile tool I own.
It just makes things so much easier.
I would tell anyone who is thinking of buying the silverware bending press to go for it without hesitation. I'm a disabled artist and have terrible issues with my hands and this press has given me the ability to still be creative and make beautiful jewelry. This has given me a positive thing in a world of chronic illness. If I can use this press, ANYONE CAN! It's worth every penny!
The quality of your workmanship on your pieces just goes to show how great your product is!
I would say that if you are making silverware jewelry, this is the only way to go. It is designed specifically for this purpose and the quality of your product will be professional. It's totally worth the investment.The Flatwearable Bending Press is the most innovative product on the market for bending silverware. It is so adaptive it can be used by anyone for many different project or pieces. It is easy to use and tough too. I have bent as many as 7000 separate pieces without having to replace my forming block. It is a great investment.
It's so easy. Just press and bend, no tightening and untightening bolts.
I have the heart of an artist! The Flatwearable Bending Press has allowed me to take my dream images into wearable art! I love it and how much satisfaction and self worth it's helped me attain!!
Do you want to make amazing jewelry while saving beautiful flatware from the salvage yard (or worse yet- the dump)? Do you want to indulge your creative side and create items that make people who have known you for years say, "YOU did this?!?!?"? Do you want to create contemporary heirlooms from family history? If you said "no" - move on. If ANY of these ideas appeal to you - DO IT TODAY!!!!! You'll never regret it - not even for a moment!!!!
I would say " come over & try mine- you'll love it!" I've only had mine 2-3 weeks but I can already envision making my money back (and more) with my next show- now that I can start including rings!! Suzanne's photos of her own products speak for themselves along with photo & testimonies of other Bender owners!! Go for it!
It takes 95% of the "bending struggle" away! If you hate pounding on a mandrel, or get mad when you didn't get the right size, you NEED this tool! Not want... NEED!!! If you sell your stuff it will triple your output! It takes the stress off your muscles! You just NEED it!
Flatwareable Bender will save you time and money. Prior to owning the Bender, it would take me about an hour to make a bracelet and about 30 min for a ring Now with the flatwareable bender a bracelet about 2 min and a ring 1 min. I love love the Flatwareable Bender.
I have owned the 6G for two years and it does a fantastic job of getting the prefect bend to all my pieces...I have recently purchased the Bending press and have not done too many pieces of as yet, but I can tell you, I thought your Bender made it easier to make jewelry before. With this new press, I can see myself making more rings tha
n ever before... venturing out to try new pieces and unique items for my customers. Al thanks to your new press...I would let everyone know that it makes silverware making so much easier...THANK YOU.
The bending press makes life simple. it is easier on your hands and makes things go faster. I save so much time using the bender compared to how I started out doing it by hand. With arthritic hands, the bender is a lifesaver! Once you start using it, it will pay for itself. You will love it like I do!
If you love to make jewelry and want to do so efficiently purchase a Bender from Flatwarable you have got nothing to lose they offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
It is the best piece of equipment I have ever ordered. Not only is a great tool but I have learned so much from making the items I can use what I learned in other jewelry making projects. Also, the owner shows you how to do everything and more. I can go on and on about your company because it is absolutely the bomb!!! I Will continue to love everything about your company and tools!! I have been making jewelry for about 30 years now and hands down you are the best experience I have had in a company that sells jewelry tools.
Their machine is the best out there! Even me, at age 61 can do many things with the machine.
If you want to enjoy bending your goodies, use the Flatwearable Bender. The cheaper ones are VERY difficult to use (I know this from experience) and you end up frustrated and annoyed.
I love my bending press, it works just as described, easy to use, and has paid for itself many times over! It gives a perfect bend and my clients are very happy with the results. More importantly, I have always received amazing service from you! My orders arrive quickly, as ordered, and you have always answered my questions promptly! Thank you for what you do!
Do it! It is such a lifesaver! I was on the fence for awhile but I knew there had to be an easier way to bend than what I was doing! (Hammer & metal pipe haha) it's so easy on the hands & makes a beautiful bend!
There are many ways and videos out there on how to make silverware jewelry. You can manhandle every piece, hammer, twist, heat, or you can work smart and get the Bending Press. It is easy to use and makes designing more interesting. Flatwearable Art is my go to store for everything "silverware". They have how to videos and help with everything. We are in our 60's. Couldn't do this without the press. It's a life saver.
If you don't have one but think you would like making rings and things - GET ONE - you will love how easy it is and family and friends will be impressed. Silverware/silverplate is easy to find at estate sales, auctions and garage sales cheap.
For anyone who is considering getting into this hobby/craft, the Flatwearable bender is a MUST. I can thank the bender for all of my silverware jewelry success. To put it simply, the bender takes all the muscle work out of the process and allows the artisan to focus on their creativity and making new on-of-a-kind pieces. To try to create rings and bracelets by hand bending is nearly impossible, trust me ... I tried for a long time before I discovered Suzanne and her tools! Not to mention the invaluable lifetime support Suzanne provides!
It changed my life. I was forced to retire and my husband passed away four months later. The bender I bought shortly thereafter gave me an opportunity to reinvent myself. I have meet 100 's of people and made wonderful new friends none of which would have happened without my bender. Each day I go into my work area and dream up new products and I love, what I do. The bender itself is very easy to use, very sturdy and allows you to make many wonderful creations.Thank you.
Love my bending press and this company that goes over and beyond to help you in any possible! Thanks a bunch!
I love both of my benders! The newest bender has made my artistic endeavors so much easier! I use it everyday and search the internet for inspiration! Thanks for all of the engineering work, the tips and tricks, and your new projects. Thx for all you both do.
I have achieved so much with both my benders, never would have achieved any of my silverware pieces without them
