  • rod/tubing bender

    I need to bend some 1/4 inch brass rod 90 degrees this is pretty soft material so it should not take too much. I would like to get a nice bend on it.
    Does anyone know where I can find plans to build a bender for small size rod/tubing? I have a pretty good idea what they look like but a set of plans would be a great help and time saver for me. I know I have seen one on a web site somewhere but for the life of me I don't remember where

      use a small pipe bender, even a metric 6mm will be oversize enough to bend 1/4, i have a hadibender ive used a few times [record tools] works well

        Search Mcgyver's posts, he built a dandy, and posted great pictures and a write up of it.
        It is on page 3 of his posts, I've forgotten how to make a link to it, maybe someone will jump in and post a link to it.

        Edited to say the thread is titled "A tube bender saga".
