    Haha, speaking of that bender, I just made one at the machine shop at school this weekend. Cost me $40 in steel and 2 days worth of work to make 2 of them, one for me and one for a friend who helped make them. We've got one for the race team at school so we just used the plates as templates and copied them exactly, even made it from 5/8" plate! Gonna order up the dies and degree ring tomorrow /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif We were gonna make up the dies too but I didn't feel like going through all the work, it's just easier to buy them. Too bad the hydraulic setup is so expensive, the one we have at school is so nice!!! Just step on the pedal and bend away!

    LOL, I know. It was just a round about way of saying "congrats, wish I was you". I've actually been thinking of getting a bender myself. There are so many ideas bouncing through my head on things I want to do. If I have all the work done, It'll cost more than buying a bender and die.
