    Default 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.

    With that bender you may have to make the rings in halves and weld them together...Good luck

    1" steel bar, no heat, and that radius? I think you are in trouble.

    No it won't. That is a tubing bender & you are asking about bar. Big difference.

    Could it be done with heat and that bender? I've been on to a gas supplier and now you can buy the propane canister/cylinder. So I will have heat.

    You can heat bar stock in a forge and bend them around a piece of tube with no problems. Forge is easy to make.
