Adam's Wraps

First BendWherever possible, I use the various products that are advertised on this site. Case in point : the wraps I purchased from Adam Glass.

These are the business. After using them once, the old scraps of leather I'd been using (a disused car-washing cloth from the look of it), were relegated to the big round filing tray. A few weeks later, they're like old friends. Perfect.

If you're just thinking about trying your hands (quite literally) at a little short-steel bending, grab a pair of Adam's wraps; and a copy of Jedd's Bending eBook. It really is a superb combination.
