Yoshiaki W-3 Adjustable Bonsai Branch Bender Clamps and Jack - 4" x 4"
Yoshiaki is the favorite brand of bonsai tools for all levels of bonsai lovers. They have an extensive line of scissors, cutters, etc of all different sizes. With its robust construction and great performance, it's highly sought after. If good care is used, these tools can be passed down to the next generations. It's even the brand that House of Bonsai enjoys the most; we use it all the time to work on our trees!
When wire alone can't bend a thicker branch, this tool will make that stiff branch gain some curves!
Place the C-hooks on the branch and have the T-topped jack underneath where you want your bend. You want the T-topped jack to be on the inside of the bend. Tighten the wing nuts and screw against the metal support bar until snugly clamped against the branch to install it.
Over the next few weeks, tighten the wing nuts and screw a little bit (ex: 0.5 - 1 mm) at a time until you get your desired branch bend on your bonsai tree.
