homemade press/tube bender


Recommended Posts

i want to make up a tube bender and a bearing/bush press out of one unit. Which is the best way to start?

Buy a press and adapt to bend tube (is the ram length long enough)


buy a tube bender and adapt to a press?

either way i am getting replacement tube dies anyhow. either machines will be based on a machinemart/sealey type product.

any suggestions???

no gap at the top - they are just strengthing ribs, we've made a whole heap of press tooling to go in baby press, multi V working with a short press blade or gooseneck, upteen bush drifts and seats and a variety of squashing dies etc

for little jobs and shoving in the back of a tech truck its proved to be really handy - nothing for our cars can have just one function so it also comes in handy as a jack :lol:

HTH :)
