Fixing a Bent Belsales Autococker Beavertail

I set up my camera to record the technique I use to straighten out a bent Autococker Beavertails.

Aside from a vice, the only thing required is a piece of heavy duty steel angle bar. 

On my original facebook post for this video, Russel Miller also comments that in the final portion of the video when I’m bending the bevertail 90 degrees I could heat the metal to prevent it from cracking. Russel writes, “Should mention you could also use heat, like handheld propane torch to keep the angle of the beavertail from cracking while doing this.”

Salvatore Astuto also adds that, “They sell L stock and flats stock at Home Depot and lowes. In both steel and aluminum.” 

The Belsales Autococker beavertail in this video is from Darryl Trent’s 1991 Ironmen Autococker. Find that article here:
