    Someone had posted a link to an company with inexpensive hydraulic (or pnuematic) tube benders. Can anyone refresh me on that company? This would be for a frame / cage project.

    proably Harbor Freight. About $70. It's ok but really for what you have listed you want to do...get the JD or other bender Keith listed.
    I have used the cheapo and was able to make a cage using the factory bar as the base. I was not able to make very tight bends with it. While I am happy with my end result I have thought about buying a JD style bender and making a new cage.

    Andy, thanks cause I've got an idea to run past you.

    Keith, exactly what I was looking for!

    Grim, I was wondering about the Harbor Freight one, thanks for the info on it's capabilities.

    Coopertwpk, thanks for the additional outfitter.

    I knew there were a bunch of fabricators out there!
