This one is for your standard horizontal pedistal style. Pretty good detail for each part.

Pro tools offers free plans to build thier hydraulic pull through bender. They also offer all the parts individualy.

Thanks guys! Do you know if any of these can produce mandrel bends? I'll have to keep this in mind in case I ever put a roll cage in my car.

A mandrel is pretty much just a pipe insert that stops the tube collapsing when it's bent.
It's not really the bender itself that dictates whether or not you can use one but more the design and length of the piece you're bending.

"Men and women range themselves into three classes or orders of intelligence; you can tell the lowest class by their habit of always talking about persons, the next by the fact that their habit is always to converse about things; the highest by their preference for the discussion of ideas"

Resurrecting this thread... Most of the links listed above end with 404 errors

It's based of a JD2 bender and setup for those dies, but can be made to accept pro-tool dies. Soon as Gojira gets finished and sold, this is one of the investments!
