Vise and some heat makes bending a strap pretty easy. My scamp
has two. Both were repositioned when a battery
box was added and the propane
had to move forward a few inches. The new position required bending change. Welding shop did it as a matter of course with a torch and vise.
Metal strap is cheap, can screw up a couple of times getting used to using your new tools. steel or iron that is glowing red bends very easily.
Vise and mapp gas torch should do the job and add to your tools collection in a nice way. Propane
can work to heat and bend the metal but I think MAPP gas would work better similar cost for torch but hotter gas. I think one can use propane gas in mapp but probably not the other way around. Not 100% sure. Have used both but only own propane.
