Step 1: Measuring out your material
For one of my cutters I made a diamond shape. I marked a spot in about the middle of the my strip of metal.
Step 2: Using a finger press to make your shape
To create my first bend I placed the line I marked directly under one of the fingers on the press. Using the side levers I clamped the fingers down on my strip. Then I pulled the lower handle up to about the degree of bend I wanted to achieve. After the bend I am left with a V shape to start my diamond off.
