65Chevy4x4 I personally like the solar powered cloth drier.

Then you get a 25ft long piece of string and a turnbuckle.

cj8scrambld Filling tube with sand is a technique...not "plans to build a bender". He knew what he was doing.

imprtfightr I used paypal. He did end up giving me a refund. I think he knew all along what he was doing, it was just his excuse. Im fairly new into tube bending and even I knew this for years.

fabcam The seller pulled the auction. I really think he didn't realize this was common knowledge.

edit...update

Well I sent this response back to him:
Thanks for the followup. Unfortunately this is common knowledge in fabrication circles. Just do a google search!!!

And now I received this response back:
I see, you are right. I have offered a refund to anyone who has bought one. I thought I had a new idea one day sitting in the shop messing with a harbor freight bender. Guess I should have done some research before I posted it.
Thanks,
Mike

fabcam I PM'd this guy on Ebay. I said something like:
"Are these plans something mechanical or is it the age old B.S. like how to pack sand into the pipe?"

I got a reply:
"Its an great idea that I came up with on how to pack sand into the pipe. Looks as if I am not the only one to come up with this.
Thanks,
Mike"




I think this guy just didn't realize that his idea is pretty much common knowledge.

WLD_OTZ Freiking Classic! Reminds me of the story about my Grandmother when she purchased a device "Guaranteed to Kill BedBugs". She received two 2x4's 6" long. And instructions of course.

Fawking scammers!!

Im not just trying to bash someone. This guy is scamming people. I dont want anyone else to lose $20. He hasn't responded to my email about a refund but I did recieve the crappy file in 5 minutes.
