# Left and Right Hand Lower Horizontal Splice Plate

I formed the bend on these two parts. I noticed that the hardwood dowels I have been using were being crushed with use so I switched the one on the inside of the bend for a 1" OD socket. This seemed to work well. As usual I ended up with a bit of orange peel on the surface that disappeared with an application of scotch brite. I had a hard time guessing at the spring back and ended up over forming the parts a little. A few taps with a rubber mallet brought the bend back to the correct angle.
