      How about a little more info on this tubing bender you mentioned. I would like to see your plans. PM me if you would like, I don't want to high jack this post.

        I got them here: http://www.roundeyes.com/Products-LED_Lighting.html
        I mounted them differently than they are designed. I beat the mounting panel/tab flat, drilled holes and a countersink (to allow for light dispersion) for the light and mounting holes and riveted them in place. It was a real bugger fishing them up to the ends of the bumper and holding them in place while I set the rivets.

          My bender is a real "Off the Wall" design. I wanted a powered bender but didn't want to spend the big bucks for hydraulics, so I'm building it to be powered by my winch! I have a concept drawing in my photobucket account:

            Using a winch cable to operate a tube bender!

            Scary.

                Not really, My winch is rated @ 9000#, the synthetic cable @ 16,000# the hydraulic pressure on a hydraulic unit is usually 3,000# +-. My winch design has the advantage of torque applied through mechanical advantage gained by the force being applied at a greater distance from the c/l of the bending radius.

                  No, I purchased bending dies for a JD2 bender.
