I managed to scrounge up a "compact bender" made by Lock Down Securities, evidently one of the older models..pretty much identical to the metal benders sold by everyone, Harbor Freight included. Basic bender gizmo on a square post with a plate you bolt down to the floor, all the normal dies yada yada. It was never used and the die box has yet to be opened.
Ok...how the heck do I use it? Ive spent 45 minutes doing web searches for any sort of metal bender instructions that would be applicable. Ive never even seen one of these things used before..so Im a total cherry when it comes to this thingy. I figured it would be a nice thing to have now that Ive gotten a bit more into welding. Shrug. It was free..so I snagged it.
Also...anyone have any good suggestions how to mount this thing on dirt so it doesnt go away when I reef on the handle?
Ill be putting it out back next to the welding table some place close and of course, its just dirt back there. Id rather not pour a chunk of concrete to mount it on as I may need to move it now and again.
Thanks in advance
