Building a Better Bender
« on: September 18, 2017, 10:21:16 AM »
I found the plans and instructions for my bending machine!
A number of people have asked for the info so here it is in its own thread. The actuating arms can be any length, so they are not on the drawing, and the formers are as you like!
There are simpler and smaller devices about, but this is a 'strong arm' version as it will bend almost anything if you make a suitable former. It got into the Model Engineers Workshop magazine (they paid me 100!) so it must have some merit!
Have fun :cheers:
I just noticed that the final paragraphs are missing: but you get the idea!
