Default Hossfeld bender

Any way to tell if its an original or a knockoff? Picked one up today, he said it was an original.

That looks original. And a steal at that price with the dies!

I haven't gone through them all, but I see a 3/4, 1, and 1.25 dies.

Well, I am proud and embarrassed at the same time! Not long after I brought the bender home, I miss placed the swing arm. I thought about making another but have been too busy. Today while putting away the tent from camping over labor day weekend, I found it! Its kinda funny, both my fiance and myself looked in the trailer(where I found it) independently, so we wouldn't miss it. GO FIGURE!

It looks mostly like the one we had at Valley high school for the twenty years I was there. As to the "hoop" part, I think it did go further around. But I haven't been there for over two years now, (cursed Covid and two idiot teachers) .
I made a couple of things to do the bending for one of the projects the kids were doing for it.
