Thanks, couldn't have got it going without the advise from this forum and it's members, the maths for sizing the ram etc, and the input on different styles to go for and there good and bad points,
I still have a fair bit more to do before its finished, I have to mount some jacking bolts to it and 4x removable legs which will be mounted inside the frame coming out diagonally to make its Base about 1.5m x 1.5m. The ram Pivots so a light weight clamp needs adding near the pivot point on the arm (does not do it under pressure but does when no load or pulling back)
I need to get a bigger psu for the control box as I only have a 1A one and need at least 3A as the coil is 2.5A. Then I can use the remote and the display will stop the bender once it's reached the desired angle.
I need to remount the angular gauge so I can still use that to check my display against.
Mount the control box on the frame and paint it all. Put some clamps on the hoses and get rid of the cable Ties!
Thanks again to everyone on here who has answered questions and provided valuable information. At some point I will compile a complete list and rough costings so it's usefully to others.
