Perfect Z-bends: You can make a perfect Z-bend with this easy-to-make took. Cut a 1/16-inch (or the appropriate) slot in the head of a lineman’s pliers. The easiest way to do this is to use a Dremel tool and the cutting disk. Then just bend an “L” bend using the pliers at the end of the pushrod. Now insert that pre “L” bended wire into the slot and bend in your Z-bend.
