  • Homemade Tubing Bender

    Does anyone know L. Holt, who made the hydraulic tubing bender in the idea gallery that got honorable mention in the projects contest? It's one of the best and simplest ones I've ever seen. Much better than the lamo projects that won the contest. I'd like to get some info about it.

    Thanks,
    Ric G.

    Start brain...engage mouth

    I think you should be on the forum a while before you begin to insult other
    members projects. Remember...........they were winners!!!!!!!!
    If you expect a lot of help on this soon, you may not get it My $.02

      Sorry, Monte55

      I was only reflecting on the many other replies regarding the contest results, as observed on many welding forums. Most replies were hoping for project winners with a little more originality and/or sophistication, as was I. Sorry if I offended anyone, including the winners.

      Miller's representative did respnd to my request for more info on the project off-forum stating they had no info on the bender, but had so many requests for plans that they were considering making one themselves and offering project info directly.

      Humbly,
