The one I made is long gone,,, sold it off,,,but it looked just like the one below but with the gear box that I put on it..
it took the work out of making the U-bolts and many other types of bent fastners....
I reworked the hand pull bar and installed the power unit....work great ,sold it off for 1200.oo bucks ...it would turn out tons of fasnters all day long..and I mean all day long
12 hour days back then...
I used Link Chain on the big plate and a gear to turn the bending point head..
• Bend Radius Capacity: 12" Radius
• Round 3/4" round mild steel
• Square 5/8" mild steel
• Flat 1/4" x 2" mild steel (easy way)
• Flat 1/8" x 1" mild steel (hard way/edge bend)
• Steel Tubing, 16 ga.: 1 1/2"
• IPS Pipe: 3/4"
• Forming Nose Height: 2 1/2"
• Center Hole 1" Dia.
I now have one like below for small jobs I do now and then,,,it also works great on anything under 1/2" dia.
