Background

Several members have been asking for a tube benders and rollers for a number of years now and adding one to our tool set will expand our fabrication facilities a lot. To make best use of these tools a tube notcher is also included in this vote.

The aim of this vote is to provide members with the ability to bend several commonly used tube sizes along commonly used centre line radii. This will include 1", 1.25", 1.5", 1.75" and 2" tube along 3.5", 5.5", 6.5" and 6.5" CLR's respectively. As well as provide facilities for rolling tube to large CLR bends in the same sizes (1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2).

The proposal is to purchase a pro bender Pro32 bender that accepts JD Model 32 dies, with caster base and 8 ton air over hydraulic ram - ~$900.
