    what's the max thickness those benders can bend?
    say 1.5" DOM and 2" DOM.

    With the 103 Heavy Duty Pro-Tools says you can bend 2"x.120wall, but I heard of people bending 1/4" wall with them.

    It is super easy to build, I actually lucked out and got a pump/power unit off of a powered pallet jack. I am going to start putting all the parts together after the ride next weekend, just so I can dedicate all of my time right now to the Jimmy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    that does look fairly simple to build assuming you have some metal fabbing skills /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

    The author did an excellent job on listing part#s, instructions, etc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Good site.

    I'm currently saving up for a plasma cutter. My wife finally gave me the ok to start saving for one...should have one in a couple months or so...

    But for now, I just use the oxy acety...it gets the job done and I just grind off any slag it leaves behind.
