Jd2 with deg ring and 1", 1.5" and 1.75" dies plus notcher came to about a grand to my door. I spent about $750 plus steel to build the rest of it.

I bought the pump, cylinder and control valve from Northern. Pump unit is Haldex Barnes 1hp factory set at 2000 psi. Cylinder is a 3" x 24" stroke. Stroke travel is roughly an inch a second and ram force should be about 14k lbs. at full pressure. Hoses are 1/2".

Bend first? Scrap tube for practice <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Jay, a write-up on your web page for that would be greatly appreciated <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I am working on building my own version of the "One Shot" bender in a hydro activated version, looks easier to build and all I gotta buy are the dies <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">

Any reason you went with the 3" and not the 2" ram? I know the 2" will bend faster so do you think the 3" works better because it is slower and therefor give you some time to be more accurate. Any way great job.

Some other questions. What Hp motor does the pump have and what GPM is it?

Ok, question, and maybe a dumb one.


...Do you just eyeball it for angle of bend? How are you going to know when you've hit 90-degrees, or whatever you want? Or is there an indicator somewhere on it?

Lots of us bend a piece of heavy wire to the angle we want and then just bend until we match that angle. In picture 4 it showes the degres ring at the bottom of the bender, it is the 1/2 circle shark fin thing. It has all the degres marks on it.
