Geno created the topic: Press heavy metal + rod bender

The 1" rod I need to bend for a project won't fit in the iron worker at the welding shop so i made a rod and flat stock bender. One change from the beginning pics is I made some copies of the press top insert so they can be welded to whatever and adapted for the press to make it more accurate, and where it will hold itself in. This will do rod up to 2" and flat stock up to 6" wide. One side does rods and the other does flat stock. Made this mostly to bend heavier stuff my finger brake won't do. :thumb1

This is after the design change for the top angle to fit in the press.

Next up are some more adapters of different lengths to weld things to, and a steering wheel shaft press adapter. It gets dangerous sometimes with the bolt on the end of the press original knob lol. :jump1
