    Making the press benders does require knowing some things such as making sure you have the bender guided so that you don't put any side load on the press bar causing it to bend instead of the intended material.

    Thanks I do have a good source for bicycle chains but I have more use for ansi 40,50 &60 as well as multi link like timing and primary drive chains. I do ok I seldom have to buy chains unless I have a call for something special where there is a load requirement and I need new chain.

    I've decided to piece together my own press break … it won’t be as slick as the one in the kit that Swagoffroad.com puts out but I think it will cost a heck of a lot less … I figure it will take about $15 to $20 worth of steel. Gas, electricity and rod ( or wire) to complete.
    BTW I shortened the video of the “Winky dinky metal bender” and replaced the old one on youtube with it. It really wasn’t intended to be a tutorial … just another chance to look at sparks and plug my music hehehe … yes, I realize my sound is too tame for the younger folks but … never say die(yes, I know tame rhymes with lame ... let's not go there ok?) … lmao http://youtu.be/1bR-2HyAqDo

    You'll like it ... just remember to weld the bottom die in steps to avoid warping and make sure you square the guide posts ... it only took me around 35 to 40 minutes to put mine together ... works great too!

    Actually I thought about it and since I made these bar sets during the contest it doesn't make any sense not to include them as entries SO I'm going to enter both sets of bars that I made as ... PROJECT # 3 Home and Shop Security here are some pictures of the other bar sets that I made ... if I can do it this way without starting a thread ... I'll go back and look at the rules again but for now ... Click image for larger version.

ID:	9371 I couldn't find mention if each project needed to have it's own thread or not ... I wish there was a way to edit threads ... aagghh this computer stuff makes me crazy sometimes ... I'm so confused lmao.
