    Sold my 66 Chevy Shortbox Prostreet project this week. Wanted to devote more time and $$ to my Crew Cab conversion/experiment. Anyway, some of the proceeds were spent today on a Pro Tools 105 bender and a 1.75" Die. Sounds like Brent (85mouse) might get to be the first victim. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

    Bender is $250. The die is around $200. I got the 240* die so I could make 180* bends w/o springback. Got it through Rockbuggy Supply . Alan there as been good to deal with.

    Have you checked out his Fourm? There is some good tech on there from time to time.

    I will probably call you at work when it arrives. Yesterday, I thought I could wait the two weeks. Today, I am waiting for the Brown Truck. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    It arrived Wed. Work has been a MAJOR PIA the last couple of weeks. We have to switch out Menard's inventory. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Might get time to start making the stand this weekend. I will keep you posted when it is time to fire the mother up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There you go, rather than building a stand, I'll mount it on a receiver tube. Then just drive around and bend stuff for people. I could become the Johnny Appleseed of bent tubing. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
