in this video i show you how i make my "chain loops" i hope you dont judge but it's a pain in the ass... i just wanted to show how much i put into these baskets and i'm sorry for swearing at times. i really don't know what else to say? other than i hope it helps people know what it takes to make a high quality basket.

very nice job! those baskets look like instep baskets great job! ever think about torching the steel rods before you bend them? makes them more plyable we did that in metal shop in high school. would probably reduce the "fun" part just remember to wear heat protection.

When your ready for the last bend & that ****er keeps slipping, just get vice grips on it or at least some big ass channel locks would help. Looks bad ass as an end product though! They look just like mine but red.

I did the chain upgradde just like yours, & a new pant job! Silver coated shaft, chains, flag poll & the rest is white. Stands out like a mother ****er, & in the sun no mistake that's where it is!

dude nice baskets...i know how you felt when trying to bend those loops...i had the same problem...but to make it easy..i went to sears or home depot..and bought a mapp gas kit...heated about 2 or so inches of that end red hot ..then it bends like butter...lot better than sore arms and busted thumbs...just keep the mapp gas out of he way of the bending area...
