  • My Handi-Bend Project...

    Hey guys,
    Here is the post on microzones' forum for the Handi-Bend I made that some of you may find an interesting project. I listed the material sizes I used, but you can increase or decrease the sizes for the size unit you need. Thanks.... Denny

    I guess that you can't see the pics unless you're a member.

          Hey guys,
          Sorry about the lack of seeing the pics. I'll post them here & it will take (6) posts to finish, so please give me some time to get them all on. Thanks.... Denny

                        I need a press first

                        Looks good! Thanks for reposting the pictures here.

                        Not sure if you're aware, but if you were to relieve the bottom of the 'v' block, you could make some of your bends in thinner materials sharper. Another trick for repeat projects is to make a spacer that the frame of the jig/press bottoms out on at the correct spot. (They do take some fiddling to get the first time, but are great after that.)

                        Though...hmmm...for lighter stuff, there's no reason an arbor press wouldn't work with one of these. I just have to go get my arbor press one of these days, it's at a friends place.

                          Hey greywynd,
                          Thanks & you are most welcome. Yes, I have another block ready to do just that(relieve) and almost finished with the accessories. I have an adjustable slide for the front to maintain squareness, an adjustable depth stop for the back, and a 2" travel dial indicator that will set downward travel for different angles with a stop bolt assembly. I'll post the additions when completed. Ran into a couple of lucrative contracts for brackets and they are small("L" @ 6.5 X 2.5"), but the order will be for 1500 initially. Today, I shipped the first 2 prototypes that were in pic #26. There are 7 different variations needed, so, I'll wait to see if they accept the prototypes. ....Denny

                              Hey guys,
                              Here is an add-on to the handi-bend I made to maintain square alignment. I simply took a 6" pc. of 1" X 1" angle, cut 1" from one side, notched other side(this will be back leg) w/cutoff wheel & bent to 90*. Then welded the notch, cut another piece to 1.5" L, clamped w/ 1/2" spacer & welded as this will be the front leg. Then drill front leg w/#7 drill & tap w/1/4 X 20tpi tap for locking bolt. This accessory is for use on the handi-bend WITHOUT the "V" block. When finished, I will post the modification piece that will be used to square material WITH the "V" block. And there will be the last add-on that is a depth stop that will mount on the rear of the handi-bend to adjust for length. Here are the pics of the 1st piece & the photos are kinda self-explanatory. Hope this helps you or provide you an idea for your own setup..... Denny
