Tube bender

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Be sure your cursor in where you want the pic to go BEFORE you select "Place inline"

Hope that's clear

If you want dimensions,I can come up with something,probly wouldn't be all that difficult to make you a drawing,I actually built it fron the picture I saw,then cut and welded what seemed to make sense,the guy who originally built one,tried to post instructions,but they threw me off a bit,kinda not in order,so I figured what have I got to lose,$3 in scrap and some practice,just so happens it actually worked!

Base for bench is 2 inch angle,you need an 8",and a 16" piece, the upright for axle are 8" also,the mandrel is a piece 24" long bent around a b-tank.then 2 pieces 6" long,I bent and welded the loop,then added in the 6" pieces, how I positioned them is put a level on the top flat,then added the 2 in the perfect verticle position,found the center ,drilled a half inch hole,for the axle bolt,which I welded to the 2 6" pieces,the rib on the back is a little too big,but it's what I had,1/8" solid rod,the cleat is 2 7" pieces with a roller,and another on top to hold the tubing when you pull it through!
