I pre-bend maple binding in the same press with heat blankets as I do the sides. I just shut off the heat, and leave it alone overnite. Letting the bindings cool in the press really helps them hold their new shape.

Then, I start glueing the bindings in the waist, with lots of good taping. Let that dry a good day or two, then glue the rest. Hope that helps, if thats what the problem is. Had same issue, but that fixed it.
