Hello Everyone,

I have started a new project and I’m having some serious difficulties.

I’m bending spoons with a spoon bender and you have to press very hard for it to bend, when bending the spoon, rivets and gashes keep forming that I cannot buff out and it ruins the beautiful designs in the metal.

I have tried to slip a piece of fabric between the former and the spoon but the corners cut through all the fabric.

I have even tried hot glue the sharp edges to protect the spoon, but the glue just peels right off, does anyone have any ideas?

Please help!
