Suggestions for Model 32 set up
I treated myself with a couple of new additions to my hobbyist tool arsenal this Christmas and am looking for some suggestions. I picked up the HD press brake from SWAG to go with my 20T HF shop press. Its all welded up and ready to go - been messing with it a bit and it seems to be a great product, standing up to its claims. What I am seeking input on is the set up for the Model 32 manual bender I also got from JD2. I have plenty of 2x4 1/8 rectangle laying around and had planned on making a floor mounted pedestal for it. In the time between ordering it and receiving it, I had a change of heart and now think it would be best to wait and set it up with an 8T air/hydraulic ram in a vertical bending orientation. I think the mobility option and less space required for long pieces would be a great plus. For those with a few hundred bends under their belt, it is worth waiting to go with air/hydraulic from the get go, or should I just stick with the traditional floor mount and get to bending and learning? Thanks for any input or ideas!
