Home Made Pipe Bender
It consists of a 15-in. wheel rim cut in half with a piece of 2 3/8-in. pipe welded into the center and another piece of 2 3/8 in. pipe welded from the center pipe out to the edge of the rim. On the opposide of the rim, weld a small piece of channel iron to hold the pipe you're bending. We use a piece of 2 in. pipe, inserted into the 2 3/8-in. pipes, as a lever to roll the rim. The two pieces of pipe give you two positions for leverage for bending at different angles."
