Tube Bender Plans
Want to build your own bender? Well here you go, this is the same unit I used to build the entire Hilux chassis, the roll cage in the RPS13 and the chassis in the PS13. Grab these plans and get the materials laser cut at your nearest engineering business, get the pins turned up and your half way to building whatever you like.
You will also need the following.
Side springs – These depend on the bottle jack you use, most hardware stores will have a spring that will suit the application.
Bottle Jack – Suits most mass produced sub $100 3 tonne bottle jacks, the dimensions for the hydraulic bottle jack
-Base Dimension: 120mmx150mm Maximum
-Closed hight: 180mm Maximum
-Open hight: 340mm Minimum
Not designed to bend anything more than CAMS spec roll cage tubing, you can find the details on the steel spec and all other requirements by hitting this link.
Please note that Engineered to Slide is a one man operation, all the products you see here are sourced and produced locally, I ship once a week so I can spend more time working in the garage, if you find something that needs re stocking then let me know and I can re make it. All proceeds make this website and all the projects within it possible so I thank you for your business.
Thanks, Nigel Petrie
