Default Cheap Little Homemade Bender

I don't know how to provide a direct link but, if you go to Goggle Books and look up Popular Mechanics, the October 1975 issue, there's a very simple bender.

It uses a hydraulic bottle jack and sits on the benchtop. At first glance, it looks kind of hairy. Going by the figures in Mc Master Carr, even the cheap, low strength rod should be able to withstand 9.8 tons. The one in the article uses a 3 ton jack.

One could way, overbuild this thing without much trouble or expense.
