Bend to the will of the gods and they will bless you immeasurably. Or is it bend to the will of God and He will bless you immeasurably?
Bend a piece a metal, and I guess you will be blessed. In our case, manually bend metal outriggers, weld them to steel beams and weld those prepared beams into a single frame. Only after all that bending and intense heat will we be blessed with a custom frame for our 1970 Airstream Trade Wind.
In the previous blog post entitled “Help,” we gave props to a local friend who custom cut outriggers for our Labor of Love. Being as naive as I am, I thought the freshly cut outriggers were spectacularly ready for the frame building process. Nope, some bending had to be done. Brian had to bend 20+ custom cut outriggers using a hydraulic press brake.
I swear that life is always bending and shaping something, whether it be a tree, a piece of metal or our hearts. We as mortal human beings are never quite ready…we must be molded and shaped before we can become a part of that bigger something.
So, let the bending commence; and hence, reap the benefit of the pressure.
