Here it goes! Hope to get pictures and video's up too. It may be long but I need to win this contest and I hope you read it all.
My name is Bobby Cox and I am the next Baileigh Industrial Idol! I want to win this contest so badly. I need to win this contest. I have four sons to feed on a teacher's salary. The simple math is I don't have the cash to buy the tools I really need. My great friend Brent has lent me the use of his hydraulic bender which I greatly appreciate. The two big problems are I have to one give it back and two it sucks to bend with it. It gets the tube bent but it is slow, unsteady, inaccurate, hard to setup, and impossible to repeat a bend.
One stroke goes to about 45 or 47 degrees depending on if the degree wheel moved or not. When it is time to return the bender back to its original position you have to use a large piece of tube as a lever, and contort your body to create enough power to push the ram back to the start.
The degree wheel is constantly moving out of position no matter how much you tighten it down. The coat hanger pointer is better suited for my closet then it is to build a tube chassis.
If I'm lucky and not exhausted from the first bend, then I better pray I'm lucky to get a second piece of material bent the same way.
To top it all off when I give the bender back even though it sucked it bent tube at the very least. I will have to resort to man power and heat to get my bending done. I guess having four boys is a good thing now, since they can all hang on or jump on the end of a straight tube in hopes it will bend.
With the Baileigh Industrial RDB-050 tube bender I know I can make steady, accurate, easy, fast, and repeatable bends. The solid stand, 1" drive arms, 1/2" thick ratchet wheel, easy to read degree wheel, three speed adjustable handle, and the 2 1/2" o.d tube capacity will make this all possible. I will happily give my friend his bender back and he can borrow my new Baileigh Industrial RDB-050 "Ultimate, Mega" bender anytime he wants. Trust me once he see's my new bender he will definitely be back.
Also this is just been about how desperately bad I need the ultimate RDB-050 tube bender, but I assure you I have not forgotten about the most bad to the bone, bullet proof, stronger than Super Man himself, TN-250 tube notcher. The TN-250 tube notcher is simply put amazing! At one point in my poverty I actually acquired the funds to purchase a TN-250 tube notcher. I wanted this notcher the moment the news of it was released. I knew I had to have and there was no way I could work on my buggy ever again unless I had this beast of a notcher. I scrounged every penny I could together and managed to be the first person or so I believe to have purchased the TN-250 tube notcher.
Well I know your wondering why I was so desperate to have this notcher. Well if you've ever notched with a Harbor Freight tube notcher then you know why. They are 1/4" thick at best in some places they are a mere 1/8" thick. The puny shaft used to attach the hole saw to the drill is at best suited as a paper weight. I was literally trying to make a 90 degree notch on the end of a piece of 1.75" .120 wall DOM tube and the notcher start to disentegrate in my hands. The shaft started bending and then oscillating like a warped ceiling fan. The sheet metal size screws and bolts started loosening and then the entire notcher fell apart into pieces. This was my "SECOND" Harbor Freight piece of junk notcher!!!
I was so fed up with notching in general now that I had given up on the idea of my buggy ever getting finished. Well, that was until I saw the Baileigh Industrial ad on Pirate4x4 for their new, one of a kind TN-250 tube notcher. I needed a notcher that would last a life time. A notcher that would stay true and accurate. It also must expand on other typical notchers abilities. The TN-250 met all of those requirements and then some.
The TN-250 notcher uses a 1.25 polished Thompson shaft instead of the typical and pathetic ¾ shaft of most inferior notchers. When my Harbor Frieght piece of crap was begging for mercy the TN-250 would beg for more! The TN-250 not only had the beef to last a life time it had the adjustability and precision like no other notcher before its time. The TN-250 produces notches that are repeatedly, perfect one after another. This amazing piece of equipment made all notchers look pathetic and also obsolete. When you see that it can be adjusted from 0-230 degrees it's dumbfounding how it only requires one allen head wrench. With the turn of tightening jack screw and a turn of the allen wrench you can produce angled notches never before seen. What truly amazed me was how easy the machine was to use. I can turn the wheel with a flick of the finger and go from a piece of 1 O.D. tube to a piece of 2 ½ O.D. tube in seconds. I could adjust the degree of my notch almost as quickly. Yet most amazingly I could notch ON a BEND or an off set notch. The TN-250 is not just a notcher it is a master piece.
If I could afford to I would buy the Baileigh RDB-050 tube bender immediately. I desperately need to win this contest. I have outlined how pathetic my borrowed bender and previous notchers have been. I need the Baileigh Industrial equipment so that I can finish my buggy, but also for many future projects. With the proper Baileigh Industrial equipment I plan on fabricating for others in order to supplement my teachers salary. I have my 4 boys and my wife depending on me to make something happen to improve our financial situation.
I have already begun passing on my knowledge and skills to my children and even my students in the hopes that one day they will love fabrication and off-roading like I always have. One of my most successful methods of teaching math to my students is hooking their interest with rockcrawling. I show videos of rockcrawlers and teach my students about the math of building a vehicle such as, symmetry, calculating angles of two tubes in degrees, constructing sketches of a simple cage using a compass, protractor, and ruler. We have talked about equivalent fractions and how when you need a wrench one size bigger than a 9/16 you would need a 10/16 and simplify it to a 5/8 wrench. I brought one of my 46 tall Mickey Thompson Baja Claws to class to teach them about: radius and ground clearance, circumference.and its relation to rpms and speed. I keep a set of stock dana 300 gears on my desk as paper weights and teach about ratios and multiplying fractions. The school want let me bring in a welder but I would love to show them a Baileigh Industrial Bender. I could show how what they are learning about geometry and angles can be used in the real world.
Please give me the opportunity to show case your equipment to not only the Pirate4x4 community, but to my own community. Choose me to win this contest and you will gain exposure to more than just those few presently watching but to the future Baileigh Industrial customers from Georgia and the entire south east. I will spread the word through out the land. If I build it, they will come, to Baileigh Industrial!
Your next Baileigh Industrial Idol!

I had originally planned on doing a video using the grandson but I have decided to go another route with my post.
I raced in the 4x4 class of EC4WDA events in the past and had to give it up becasue of needing knee replacment surgery. I started building a Score Class 10 type buggy using what tools I have in the shop. I had earlier had to sell my converted GreenLee hydraulic/remote bender a few years ago when I sold the truck.
My build was going smooth untill it came time to start bending tube, I had been relying on Vendors here to bend tube and ship it. My build has come to a halt becasue of my health and trying to get the buggy to someone to bend something every time it's needed.
I am on full disability and it's hard to convince the wife the need for this equipment. I have been a welder for over 30 years, enjoy spending time in the shop and would love to have this addition to my tool list. Why do I need one? Completing my Buggy would not be the end of it's use, me being on a limited income it would help me make some extra cash doing work for other racers and making pre-fabbed parts for these buggies like tree/sliders, front and rear bumpers, extra door opening bars, etc.
We pretty much all use the same chassis so I could pre make most of the parts.
I would not be in competition with anyone on the board becasue it is a different customer base. I see a real need for these parts becasue everything you see online are lightweight and not much good in a racing situation. Most are done with 3/4 tubing for the rails and some of the other parts.All my work would be done in 1 5/8" tube.
If I had these two pieces I could get out to the garage as my health allows and finally get my project done as well as help other people wanting to convert their buggy to a competition level vehicle or even make ready to mount replacement parts.
This would sort of be one of my bucket list things to get done before possibly ending up in a wheelchair. Here is a pic of the buggy as it sits now, I still have about 50 or so feet of tubing to bend and fit then just a few saftey items and it's ready to go.
At some point I'd also like to make a custom chassis for this use with all body mounting tabs installed.
Thanks for the chance,
Papee and Grandson(Nathan)

Hello Baileigh Industrial!
My names Ben, I'm from Innisfail Alberta Canada.
Here is My Video. Enjoy.
I will say, give a young guy whos just starting out a huge boost. I am just itching to bend some tube, there are so many ideas bouncing around my head that I'm losing sleep With the money I save on not buying a bender I can save that up for Hydraulic assist or my Lockers and 4.88s! If thats not enough insentive......I WILL TATTOO BAILEIGHS LOGO ON THE BACK OF MY NECK, BIG ONE TOO. If I have to I'll even sign a contract stating I have to get the tattoo in order to receive the bender and notcher!

Cause using any other brand of bender or notcher will make building everything a million times harder than it really needs to be!
To answer what I would build, the answer is: what would I not build?
If everyone had a Baileigh notcher or bender, there would be no "ghetto fab thread"
