Ernest, take a look at some of my latest pics and you could get some ideas to make bigger radii with a brake or even a hammer. Happy building..

For the ruddr parts I buils wood forms and used a router with a 1/8 round off bit. This did it. On some part forms I might have made the raduis a little big, but it will work. The parts on the bending brake have a tighter raduis.
