don't you have to reheat the piece once bent and then cool it rapidly to harden it again, otherwise it will still be prone to bending and stretching?

My experience is in sterling silver.

Ps. Nice work.

You mean you had jigs made up and machines calibrated for just one buckle, or do you plan on making more? Again, awsome post, I never knew how those were made. Mark.

Once bent and opened up again I re-heat it and quench it to insert it in the buckle and close it it doesn't take much to close it so it doesn't break.
