I've managed to complete my bender
build from your plans - I'm still waiting for the dies to arrive but here
are a few pics - you'll notice I couldn't resist making a few personal
modifications (woman's perogative!!!). The build was fairly
straightforward and your plans are very easy to follow!
This is a bender project I will
here's a couple more photos for when
you update your website!
Just thought I would send you a couple
more pics for the website - my first test bend using my home-made die and
follower set...this is bending 25mm x 25mm x 3mm box section "on the diamond"
The bender works fine and is easy enough
to use single-handed!!!!
I'm really impressed with your design and
how well it works...
have done some more photos for my bit on your website if you wish to use them
(see attached). These show how even when it is cold and covered in snow
outside, the Gottrikes bender is able to be used safely in confined spaces
indoors in the warm, in this case in my front hallway! Also there is a pic of
a frame I fabricated using diamond section tubing bent in my Gottrikes bender
and finally an updated pic of my bender now fitted with an air/hydraulic ram.
I hope these are useful to you."
