Thread: 2nd BMX Build

  1. #1

    Default 2nd BMX Build

    This is my second BMX frame. For fun I thought I would use tubemitre.exe. It was very simple to use and I will not hesitate to use it again. Tubemitre.exe would be great for larger diameter fishmouths.

    I downloaded tubemitre, I have been looking for a program like that for years,
    You can buy the templates at welding shops but now I can make my own templates, cool program for the fabricator to have on hand. I hope Santa brings you a cart for that nice machine you keep on the floor.

    A cart might be handy, I have something in my shed I am concidering. Its a retail rack on castors, about 2' square and the top rack is at about 4'. The thing is I do most of my work on the road, repairing wine tanks and commercial kitchens. But how awesome is that machine? I'm up in Canada and its cold. I thought it might mess with the sensitive electronics. Not even close, smooth every time and the settings are exactly where I left them with pedictable results every time I start the machine.

    You may want to try Tube Bender from JD2 at
    http://www.jd2.com/shop/custom.aspx?recid=9
    for free software to bend tubes and design.

    For those that need a cool tool for tube notching
    That tubemite program can be found at http://www.ozhpv.org.au/resources/shed/tubemiter.html

    I have that tube bend program, I am still learning it, its cool to animate your bends. On topic of bending tube, I have a problem with wrinkling tubes. I am bending 5/8" .035 4130, 3/4 .035 4130, and 7/8 .035 4130. I would like to do these bends around the smallest die possible and keep it clean. Any suggestions?

    I'm getting ready to order a set of tubes for a road bike. Do you build with a jig? I've built hand rails and roll cages in the past, but I'm a little unsure how to keep everything aligned.

    Did you purchase the tubes for the tubes for the front end and the pedals to accept the bearings? That would be a cool project to do for the kids.

    Nah just new members looking at interesting threads and not noticing the date. People have all different levels of internet experience just like welders have all different levels of welding experience.
