I found a set of plans on eBay for this stand. I built it using reclaimed 2 x 2 x 1/8 wall steel tubing and an eBay air over hydraulic bottle jack.
I finished it up yesterday and ran a few test bends. Works very well and sure does make using either of my benders a simple task.
All put together and ready for a test bend.
I ran a piece of thinwall 1" through the bender for a test. The jack cycles out in pulses. It doesn't shoot out real fast. It is slow and very controllable. I was concerned about how the jack would work but now have no issues with it.
About a 30 degree bend here.
