Just log in as Cavalry; if it asks for your password, email them to send you a new one.
If it says you're not already a registered member, then register as Cavalry and register a password you can remember - something like "harborfreight" would probably work.

Cutter it's nice to see that you aren't above twisting the knife and pouring a bit of salt:evil:

I read somewhere that you could put steel banding (like used in shipping) inside the tube to keep the inside and outside sides from deforming.

Seems though even oiled it would be a ***** to get back out.

Good luck with your project.

Here's another pretty good site for bending tube with almost no money in the forms. The 1" square tube bender made like a regular conduit bender looks interesting.
