Did you ever wanted a hydraulic tube bender, and a commercial bender was out of your reach? If you ever wanted to build a project like a mini bike, go-Kart, roll cage, dune buggy, or even a Recumbent Trike This is for You! I spent many days in front of the computer designing the best, the most versatile and economical tube bender you can build.
THIS IS A SET OF PLANS, NOT THE BENDER. The plans are drawn in CAD and are loaded with drawings and pictures to guide you thru the project. No, you don't have to know CAD to be able to read the plans, they are converted to PDF format for easy viewing and printing. The bender can be used with additional round and square tubing dies from ½" to 1 ½" diameter tubing and radius up to 7 inches. Depending on the bend radius, you can bend tubing form .049" to .120" wall thickness and up to 180°. The plans come with a detailed building instruction and a List of Material and part number. The dies are available from $105 to $245 and the link to the die maker will be added in the List of Material. The frame can be built for around $100 including the hydraulic ram. No CAD experience is needed, but good knowledge of fabrication and welding is required. You will have my support via e-mail till you finish your bender.
There is no shipping fee, since the plans are in PDF format and will be E-mailed to you as an attachment up on receiving the payment. Buyer will need to download the free Adobe Reader from adobe.com to be able to open the file. Once the file is received, the plans can be printed on 8 ½ x 11 sheets. If paid with personal check, I will send the file as soon the check clears.The price of the plans is $ 15.99. I prefer PayPal or money orders and I will send the file as soon as the payment is received, If paid with personal checks I will send the PDF as soon as the check clears.
The SD Tube Bender Plans are discontinued. Please see the HD or Air/Hyd tube bender plans
