Is it possible to change bend direction in synchronous?

Hi @precisionmounting,

 

Not quite as simple as ordered, but you can do it..."Detach" rotate [using the steering wheel] the flange, then "Atach" ...is what you want to do there.

Sean, I get the detach, I get the attach, but I don't get the rotate step.

 

Edit:

I got it to work but I had to rotate it twice and move it back into position before attaching.

Sorry, forgot to mention that part...use the steering wheel for that Bruce. [rotate & position as required]
