That turned out great! I've bent a lot of cromoly tube by hand on the same bender and it gets rough after a few bends, would have been really nice to have a hydraulic ram.

Looks great.
You will have to figure out a "by the minute" rate for custom bending! Laughing

i kinda feel these two questions are similar. i think i need to figure out cost of ownership per minute kind of like people figure out cost of ownership with a vehicle.. all i can say is that it was probably too expensive and i am afraid to tally up the costs.. Laughing it sure makes life super easy though..

actually, if you go to page one, there is a running cost so far.. its not complete and i will fill in the rest soon!!
