Hi,
I have noticed on cornwall models that they now do the resistor head for the bender. If you happen to have a lecy plank bender would the head fit a normal soldering if(I have 2 Sizes soldering iron) . As its only £10 for the head it would be cheaper for me.

Thanks..chris....

Didn't want to start a new thread on this but can anyone suggest a place I can get a electric plank bender? Cornwall boats are out of stock and there are none on ebay....that's about as far as my shop wisdom goes...any help appreciated thanks!

Wanna save money then buy a solder iron from Ebay and the resistor head from Cornwall Models!

I have a couple of old irons which still work so i will doctor one of those. As for the bending block which comes with the full kit, Simples, Scrap of wood about 4" (100mm) long, drill a 1" hole at one end and then then cut in half through the hole! then shape the other end to a nice long curve, Take a look at the picture (Lecky Plank Bender) you'll get the idea.

Hope this helps!
Happy Building, Russ
