why start bending down, stop due to room restriction, rotate, then continue bend, why not rotate up first then bend in one shot?

Yeah, I know it's just programming, but .....

I wonder why their website is so specific to always say stainless? Would that not work on our DOM tubing?

I thought when I read one of the original articles on the machine design they could bend any kind of steel and even thin walled stuff without a mandrel.

I found this page that has some info on it. It shows a couple diagrams of how it works and some of the math involved. It's not actually all that complicated. Build thread anyone??

Yeah I'm thinking it's for thin wall stuff like they use in office furniture, etc. I did see in the literature somewhere that they can do up to 4.5" diameter tube. That would take custom exhaust work to a whole new level.

This idea had to come from taking a poop, probably while drunk...

However it came, that's pretty damn awesome!

I'd say the second or third cage will take minutes: The first one, maybe a hundred yards of scrap DOM before you get your CAD worked out just right...

I'd say these will be aimed towards the exhaust industry as well as pharmaceutical and food service companies. These places have miles of stainless steel piping and some jacked up manifolds and junctions. One of these babies would be sweet for rigging up new lines. I'm sure other industries use stainless piping as well
