First I got some c-clamps and some old shelving and sandwiched the
metal on top of my work table and measured for the first bend
Wearing heavy work gloves I bent down the metal and guessed at the angle
then reset for each bend after using the same measurement.
It only appears to be a nice round shape but is rather a series of bends
Once the ends were bolted together I layed it on the floor and
used a little friendly persuasion to conform into shape
