Electric charcoal lighter inside the pipe. Gets hot enough to ignite charcoal! That is what I put in mine.

Good job! I've ordered an iron and will be bending sides soon.

Found this thread on side bending and just wanted to see how the side bending progressed!

I bent the sides for the honduran rosewood build successfully. They're highly figured and the HRW breaks as easily as BRW, so I used 2 side bending straps that I bought from stewmac. I used one on each side and I lightly spritzed the sides with water. I used an iron that I picked up off of eBay that has a temperature readout. It came from China, but it seems to be a nice iron. If you're interested, I posted it in the luthier tool area.
