Hmmm.. I think the valve had a closed center position.. if not, I'll swap it out. It also has a "detent" in the retract position so you can just hit the lever up and the die will raise all the way until it bottoms.. then it automatically snaps the lever back to the center position. I'll probably make an adjustable stop to trigger the detent low in the range of motion to help keep cycle times down.

Wouldn't surprise me if there's some stuff I'll have to revamp/replace. I'm not a hydraulic whiz so I'm kinda shooting from the hip on this..

i ended up switching every thing out and and using a value with a closed center

the only reason i mention it is it doesnt do any good if your punch keeps wanting to rest in the die while your tring to set up a bend but like i said i dont know how you have it planned out and it might work fine but if you run into problems i can give you the company name and part numbers i use and a Reps. number if youd like theres prices were pretty good for the custom package i buy from them
More than likely he will be using power up and down. So the hydraulics will hold the head up will the proper valving with good hydraulic cylinders.

Yep.. power up/down.. with a brand new 5" cylinder. I should be able to start putting the pivots and hydraulic system together in the next week or so..

Looks like that thing can only bend up to 16 gauge though...... we need something a little stronger.... ha ha j/k

It has a 16' bed on it.

We have bent 2" on it before, about 10" wide.

We normally bend 1/2" to 3/4" 144" wide for our buckets on it.

I like the simple design of it. The only moving parts are the cylinders. The hydraulics are run though a T so they feed each side the same.

Those rams look to be about 2.5" in diameter! Monsters!

Beserk, we had a valve body like that on our wood splitter my dad built years ago with the "detent" in the return. He was anal retentive and cut all his logs 16" (had a marker to make a mark on them) so I machined an alum sleeve for him that bolted around the rod, he put it where he wanted it. When you split a piece, you just hit the lever, and it retracted, unitl that alum sleeve was contacted....worked great. You could use thumb screws in the sleeve so it was easily adjustable so you didnt have to retract the full length each time, just the amount needed for that particular bend

I'll probably just do a threaded rod (1" bolt about 6" long) that makes contact with the main punch plate somewhere to trigger the detent. A jam nut to hold it in place should make it easy to use.

My suction and return hoses for the hydro system came in today. If I get a chance, I'm going to hit Northern this weekend and try to pick up all the fittings/adapters that I need to start connecting stuff. I'm also going to cut the mounting plate for the Electric Motor/Hydro Pump and Reservoir this weekend.

So... if all the moons line up correctly, I should have the main frame finished and mounted to the legs permanently this weekend.

Made a quick adapter for mating the hydraulic pump to the electric motor. Northern wanted $70 for theirs.. I was able to make this one from scrap..

Took about 10 minutes to measure everything, 10 minutes to draw it all up.. and 4 minutes to cut.

Motor side of adapter..


Pump side..


All bolts and set screws are easily accessible..


Tacked together and mocked up..
