made my degree wheel and pointer for the bender oh and the handle. First i tried without the extended handle and that pipe was going nowhere!
here is the degree wheel and pointer. Made the degree wheel out of a degree wheel from summit, my dad had it around for something but we made a scan of it and taped it to some plexi glass and then screwed a clear cut out on top if the degree paper.
Here is the handle i made out of 3 pieces of 4.5" plate and 40" of 1.5DOM tube.
Then i calibrated my die!
I did a 90* bend to calibrate the clr, the die list has the clr as 6.00 and mine came out to 6.25 so not to far off.
then my uncle came over and decided to try it out and made a 45* bend.
Bend-tech is still pretty confusing to me starting to figure it out more and more but if anyone is reading this and uses bendtech how exactly do you use it? I dont get the locations, is that the center of the bend? Also when you fill out lengths is A1 the length you will be sticking out of the bender like your mark location when you calibrate the die?
