So, where do you guys go to source hydraulic parts? I'm designing an electric over hydraulic tube bender running a 15ton ram. Plan to mostly bend .120 x 1.75" dom tubing. I have my specs figured out (thanks to sft) and now I just need to find the parts and buy them as money allows. I was thinking surpluscenter for the ram (4"x18"x1.5") and valve (2500psi), but what about the motor and pump? I figured going local for the hoses. I would love to find a pump that would run 2000psi minimum and .15ci/rev and run on a 115v/20amp circuit, but i can certainly handle running the pump on 230v. I only have one 230v circuit available, so I get tired of swapping the plugs for each machine out of the receptacle. I hope this all makes sense to someone...
Also, I am using a spreadsheet for all these calculations. I plan to build a reservoir. I have a sheet of 14ga just sitting around right now. I only need 1/2 of it or less to build a tongue toolbox for a trailer.
