    Need to make steel rings

    Hi would this machine be able to bend a 25 mm/ 1 inch bar into a 360? If anyone has and recommendations I'd appreciate. I don't have any heat (propane). I'm trying to avoid renting.

    That's all great advice, I will use every method described off here that I can. I will probably use 20mm as I have a lot of it left over from fixing gate hinges. Ill stick up s pic of my efforts!!!

    If you are building the handles then I think you are way off base with 1". Ours are all made with 1/2" round bar. To make them easily out of half inch you can weld an end to a pie e of 6" pipe, then heat with a torch and start bending, then just follow it around. Keep it spiraling up until you have as many loops as you will need. Then slice through the whole mess with a cut off wheel. Bend the ends together and weld. I just bent some solid 3/4" square into half circles today, and while it is doable, it takes a lot of heat. Much easier is to find a local blacksmith and have him do it, not a big job.

    Have them cut from 1" thick steel pipe and round over with 36 grit sanding discs. Prob 20 minutes each...Bob

    That looks like less than 1" diameter stock.

    For forge building it is likely best to go on iforgeiron.com and search there. I do quite a bit of metal work for the highland games here in Phoenix. What is it that you are making exactly?

    Just get a propane tiger torch heat them and bend them around something the same diameter. If you have a pipe the right diameter weld the one end to it and just keep bending it around like a spring till you have enough coils. Then cut them pound them flat and weld them together. Multiple same size rings.

    You can buy a cheap ring roller. Just make sure it's up to your capacity.
