Multi-Purpose Tool Straightens Bent Loader Teeth, Among Other Things
Bob Gamble, Sundre, Alberta: Bob built a multi-purpose tool that he uses to straighten bent loader teeth, among other things.
  "What's different about it from other presses or benders is that it's portable enough to move around easily by hand and doesn't take up a lot of room in your shop or garage. It stands 2-ft. high by 10-in. wide and is made out of channel iron and pipe. The top and bottom are 12-in. lengths of 8-in. wide channel iron. The top piece has the flat part facing down; the bottom piece, which is filled in on the ends, has the flat side facing up. Four 16-in. uprights made from 2-in. dia. pipe mount in each corner. A hydraulic bottle jack stands at the center. Bent loader teeth hang below the top plate for straightening. A U-shaped piece of steel plate can be used to bend strap iron.
  "I also set my shop-built mini anvil on top of the tool."
