Rorty No.3 Tube Bender Manual.
When built, the Rorty No.3 DIY Tube Bender will be capable of bending chrome moly tube and mild steel DOM tube (Ø12mm – Ø50mm [1/2" - 2"]) and square tube (12mm – 50mm [1/2" - 2"]) and pipe (Ø12mm – Ø38mm [1/2" - 1-1/2"]), using commercially available dies.
The Rorty No.3 Bender is ideal for larger projects and professional use, offering some marked improvements over commercially bought variants.
A time-saving quick action clamp secures the tube to the die and will not mark the tube unlike the more common use of a bolt pressing against the tube.
An easily read and adjustable degree wheel is included in the design.
Roll bars and race cages are a breeze with this tool.
This tube bender can bend up to 180 degrees.
Die sets for round tube, square tube, and pipe, are available on-line or by mail order.
When not in use, the tube bender can be quickly de-mounted and stored away.
The Rorty No.3 Tube Bender is designed with the utmost simplicity of construction in mind. The stand and most of the other components can, in most instances, be made from common steel off-cuts found in the average workshop.
Besides a welder, the only other tools required are a felt tip marker, a compass, a tape measure, a setsquare, a hacksaw (or cut-off saw), a pedestal drill (or hand drill), and an angle grinder (or file) for finishing.
The Rorty No.3 Tube Bender PDF Manual consists of thirty four pages, of which sixteen are CAD drawings.
There are also four polychrome 3D CAD images.
The Manual also contains a full Bill Of Materials.
Dimensions are in both metric and imperial formats.
Do you want to make long gradual bends in tube that are impossible to do with regular tube benders?
When you have built the Rorty DIY Roll Bender it will be capable of rolling long slow curves of variable CLR in just about any section of ferrous and non-ferrous material with precision and relative ease.
Radii greater than 100mm and angles from zero to 360° (hoops and rings) can be bent. The tube dies included in the plans are: 25.4mm (1”), 31.8mm (1-1/4”), 38.1mm (1-1/2”), 44.45mm (1-3/4”) and 50.8mm (2”).
There are also drawings for a multi-die set-up that will roll round bar of varying diameters, and flat bar (both the “easy way” and the “hard way”).
Some typical uses for a roll bender are:
· Curved roof sections of car roll cages.
The Rorty Roll Bending Machine Manual is in PDF (Portable Document Format) and consists of forty pages, of which fifteen are CAD drawings. There are also twenty polychrome 3D CAD images.
There are also a full materials list, and a full fasteners list.
