I like that little bending jig! Do you fold the bar stock around the radiused insert by hand or is there a rotating device that wraps it around for you?
Compliments on some creative solutions.
Thanks for the compliment. Yes, I bend the stock manually around the radiused insert and if it is hardened metal, I will heat it red. The steel post I made threaded at the bottom so I could change them also for different radii. If I have to make a really tight radius, I just reverse the application and wrap around the rod. Works both ways. BTW...there's a 1/2" X 2"W X 4"L steel plate welded to the bottom so I can chuck it in the vise.
I'm hoping to soon finish a really inexpensive rotating welding positioner that will surprise you. Quite simple and efficient and lots of torque. :>))
Yo, Yorkie dad -
Made a bumper for my Duramax out of Cat 3406 timing chain. Will definately deflect the next deer that intends to inflict more than 3k damage to my truck. When you finally get photos you'll get a sh*t load. My promise!
Just want you know I hold a man to his promise. I want to see, and I'm sure others here also, want to see some photos!!! Ok, 'bro....have a great holiday...Denny
