My modified got trikes bender

Here is what i am working on. I almost have all the parts made and fixing to start the assembly.

The dark blue lines are just reference to make sure my cylinder was going to clear and to see how much of a bend i could make in a single stroke.

I put the bars on the back to make handles to move it around. they will be made out of round bar, but solid edge is a pain with round stuff. and i am new to it as well.

Looks great. Too bad you can't get that thing to stroke about 100 degrees. It looks like you could if you shortened your arm and dropped the back end of the ram. You would be decreasing your leverage, so I don't know if it would work.

Great job!!!!!
