Coil Bends

Any advice on making the coil (double circle) bends on landing gear wire. I have both the mini and maxi benders. It looks like I need to put in a 1/8" post to do a tight bend radius like this with 1/8" or 5/32" wire. I have been practicing with aluminum wire, will probably have to anneal steel wire for this tight bending? This is for a trailing link retract where the gear leg has a 45 degree aft bend about half way between the retract unit and the wheel axle.
