    Homemade Bending Die

    I had some idle time at work today so I decided to turn up a small die to use in my friends tube bender. It was a fun little project. It is for 1" tube and I made it out of 4140 steel.

    Here are the pics, sorry for the bad quality they are off my phone.

    Nice work but I would not call it home made unless you have a CNC lath in our back yard...lol.
    What kind of bender does it work with?

    Yeah I guess not homemade, I wish I had that lathe at home. My friend has a pro tools bender, I'm going to have to spin up some spacers and machine the other die piece for it still.
