Even though his radius options are quite limited that was actually pretty damned clever use of what he had to do it with.
I was surprised that the axle stands up to the force.
I was also surprised when he broke out that drill press.

Funny how you start out watching on thing on YT and end up finding so much more interesting stuff was pretty neat how he did it. I would imagine there is a way to mod it to fit other radius dies if a guy put his mind to it.
one piece of pipe he bent look like galvanized water pipe but I might be mistaken.

but the best part of it all in the way of thinking is how they come up with the ideas and the crude builds of somethings and it works! and works well for having such limited resources... and here we are ppl like me who go out and buy cheap or high-end tools to do the same job and have a larger resource of junk to build from...

and for the most part, I still have that way of thinking why build it when you can buy it on a lot of tools but if I had better machines skills I might be more inclined to make something from the junk pile more often over buying the commercially built tool/s.

He definitely had a mechanical mind. I feel bad that he does not have better safety shoes though. I could not imagine working with a Grinder and welder with sandals and shorts.
