    Yes all production headers are built in heavy jigs. You try and keep them in the jigs as long as possible.
    I don't have any pics of the trailer really. Heres some shots of our benders. The yellow one is a 1947 model Wallace #4. It'll bend up to 6" tube. It was off a WW2 freedom ship. They had aboard in the machine shop. It weighs 14000lbs and is about 25' long. It has been rebuilt with an X axis computer. If you notice the jiggs bolted to it, the angle iron pieces those tell us plane of bend and distance between bends. Each part has its own. You load the tube pull your first bend, cycle bender back to 0 adjust tube to lay inthe trough and start your next bend, Full cnc machines eliminate all this but can produce bigger head aches. The blue one is a #2 pines. Its all manual. The lathe is an EHS Cholet 435. We use it to build flanges and forming dies for the press.
