Yes, I think I am going to invest in an electric plank bender. It looks the easiest way and it will obviously last many more builds, so I think it's worth it.

Hi,
I agree the Electric Plank Bender is the best option, it works really well, very glad I bought mine after messing around with flower vases and waiting ages for them to dry. Does need a while to warm up and you need to remember to turn it off when you've finished Blushing Blushing Blushing
