Here’s the bending setup. There’s one side and a strip for binding in there. Is it still in one piece? I don’t know.
I’ve got to get a more convenient clamping arrangement. I’d have some of the staff hold it down with their hands — they can’t feel anything, what with being technically dead and all — but the smell of sizzling rotten flesh just isn’t worth it.
Edited to add – Turned out okay. A couple of scorch marks, but that’s to be expected. Here’s the side clamped into a mold. (The mold just holds it in position.) The binding strip broke in two places, where the blue tape is, but since I may not even put binding on this one, not a big deal.
