    A mini "Jim Crow" rail bender. Whatever works.

    This is the one I made for the 3/4", 7/8", 1", and 1 1/4" solid bar. I took the right-angle grinder and broke the sharp corner so it would not dig into the stainless pipe and used it, haha. I will make another one just for 1.66" O.D. Pipe.

    The JD Square is one of the nicest around for bending tubes. Race car guys love them. Me, I have a Hossfeld with hydraulics, its rough and crude and will bend tube, pipe, square and retangluar tubes, angle iron and flat bar. dies get expensive...
    It seemed like a good idea at the time!

    I used a couple of different Hossfeld benders, I started on a Hockey stick, and then I used two different hydraulic Hossfeld's. They are good to have around. But if you get a Press brake/break, or even a press and a V-block and ram you start not using the Hossfeld as much. I used it to bend an arc into iron handrails and aluminum and brass handrails with plate aluminum-supported Teflon die's I made for it. I miss it.

    I got my little bending cart made for the JD Squared bender. It came out nice. Very solid, and stable, with or without the step locks engaged.

    Your support/cart is the cat's meow. Now, if were only remote-controlled for easy movement around your shop.

    Why do you prefer the JD to the Hossfeld?

    I did a lot of stainless steel bends with a Hossfeld, and it is not terrible, but it does make you feel a little like Edward-scissor-hands. There was no angle indicator on the Hossfeld, although I suppose I could have made one. I had noticed that I was getting slightly different bends depending on how well I held the pressure on the pipe while repositioning the point where the cylinder was applying pressure with the Hossfeld.

    It did take me about five bends before I got a feel for the JD Squared bender as well. The auto-locking pin on the JD Squared bender is pretty cool. The only thing I am going to do is paint one of the removable pins, either the pin that locks the pipe to the die or the pin that locks the moving arm to the die, a certain color so that I do not mix them up. So far I am liking the bender.

    That bender cart moves like a good empty grocery cart once you get over the initial inertia needed to get it moving. Very easy to steer as well because there is only one pivoting wheel.

    Re: Made A Stainless Steel Rail With My New JD2 Bender, After I Got Back From The Den

    This is what I did with my JD2 model 32 bender--mounted on a custom made frame I built to fit an ancient Kennedy roller cabinet. Installed the electro/hydraulic power pack inside the cabinet, with the motor end just barely poking through for cooling. Bending dies are stored in a rack at the bottom; accessories and related tools in the drawers. Wired it through the cabinet for convenience. Also shown is my first bending project done with it.

    Made a back- breaker tool. I only cut the hole, everything else was precut drop.
    Used on this 107 feet of pipe rail. Worked well. I rarely get pipe jobs, this was kinda fun.
