i understand that you need to bend the frame to get the pan and jaws in algnment, but do you put it in avise or do they bend easily?

Second question: is adjusting pan tension simply playing with the bolts that hold the pan on, or is there more to it? How is it done? I have always set them out as is and i want to get away from that but have no tutors. please help :cry:

I don't normally bend my trap frames... I'm confused. Do you mean bending the cross where the dog attaches forward or back? I baseplate my traps, sometimes I laminate, and I tend to grind down the notch on my pan. I put washers on the bolts to kill the slop, and sometimes I'll 4-coil if I laminate because it gives the trap speed to bust through the frozen dirt. I don't need to use a vice.

I'll make a seperate post regarding "Trap Modifications" that will have an answer for you towards the lower portion.
