I will have to watch the video much closer to see what i do wrong. Probably have to get it up on the pc with bigger screen 

Thank you for the ideas

From what you described it sounds to me like you aren't pushing forward while twisting, a very common mistake when first using a bender like this.  I have a different one but the same principle applies, you have to have forward pressure to keep the wire wraps nice and tight otherwise you get the "bread tie" effect.
