Bonsai is an artform that requires relatively simple tools... obviously som of the things used to create large bends in a branch or tree, especially if it is a big bend, are more complicated, but wire, cutting tools, and other basic things are all you need.
I don't know what else one could possibly want. There are no short-cuts in Bonsai. So the most important thing a person doing bonsai needs, even before good material to work with is patience. You can't invet or buy that.

thanks for the input.... but there are always improvements to be made. before wire or branch benders, it was much harder to shape a tree
im looking for problems people have that they want to try to solve

wire and banch benders have been around a very long time... the problems I have are not related to equipment... I'm sure many of us could say that.

this is an artform wher the top artists pay in excess of 10K dollars for an individual tree. Any problem ther eis with the tools needed have been re-engineered a long time ago. Whether it is rotaing chainsaw heads to bend-twist-cut-break-in-one-go tools. They exist.

As you insist.

Please create something better than this:



I do not find it very useful. It's too small. There are bigger versions, but due to its shape it's always in the way. The clamps are too thin, if you really want to bend branches with it, it will certainly leave deep marks. You can only adjust it slightly, it gives little control of the shape of the bend you want to make. It's pretty useless, except for very specific tasks.

How do I turn a seedling into massive nebari with fine ramification in one season?

Sorry... I couldn’t resist.

OK, this one is real. Create the perfect alternative to Akadama that is dirt cheap.
