Finished off the the bend with rivet gun

I had heard that reducing the pressure on the rivet gun was a good idea. I set the pressure at 20 lbs and found the bend easy to do and very controllable. I moved the mushroom head on the rivet gun back and forth across the bend until I got a uniform bend, being careful not to hit the lower tab.
