I wanted to make a metal bender to allow for smooth, long arcs in metal up to 2" square light wall tubing. I pieced this one together using a 20 ton hydraulic jack (yes, the jack is overkill). The video only shows a few runs through the bender. I have yet to experiment with how much tension I can put on the steel for each pass. The bend comes out great, the steel stretches and compresses very nicely leaving a very clean bend.
