Wrong rib bending fixture

I am having a few issues here at the moment, as I am sure that the shape of the bending fixture to bend the ribs for the wing is wrong. It must be one for another wing profile. Trying to get more info from Robert on this but apparently he is away for a few weeks.

The bend tube shown below is supposed to be the bottom part of the rib, but that doesn’t match the rib profile at all.

Currently trying to create a bending fixture myself as I do have the correct wing profile drawing (see above top), see how that goes 🙂
