Been doing it for years, and it works great. The hook to pull out and round the ring. I had a wooden support pole close to the ceiling hook. One to pull out the bend and shape, one to push in the bend and shape.  :clap: :D

If you are asking me, no I didn't on this steel Freshy 35 cage. I would suspect Russ did not either on the brass cage. It was surprisingly easy to shape, but getting it perfect would be another matter.
