Tube bender, Another tick in the box!

Today we made the last holes. The 1 inch center holes for the die center.
With some pins the bender is now operational.
This piece of equipment is a big tick in the box on my wishlist! I am very pleased with the result. I'll show some test-bends soon

Tube bender, Progress!

Almost finished drilling all the holes. The last few ones to do are 1 inch, for which I have no drill. Time to ask for help :-)
It will be done.

Finished the kicker arm today,
As usual it involved heat and abrasion to get it done. For the first I got some help from Joshua with his acetylene torch, thanks mate…
