Well I picked up this gem for $60. A cheap HF metal bender loosely copied from a Hosfeld (which is a whole bunch better) and it had 3 additional dies the guy fabbed up as he had a welding shop. I had to make a small part out of a 5/8ths bolt as it was missing the piece that holds up the stop block.

I don't have the floor space to spare so I am making a mount that will fit into all 3 tractor receiver hitches and the truck too for that matter. It will be then portable and the vehicles are pretty sturdy and won't give. Made this out of some scrap I got for next to nothing.

What you are seeing is the support going into the receiver and the plate that will go on it. Will most likely tack weld the bolts too so the bender can just be sat on it and hit with the impact wrench:

I know nothing about the world of bending but do a ton of work with rebar projects, let's hear about bending:

I have one of those, it works good for bending band iron and round stock. If you like working with rebar you have to go on youtube and search Gavin Clark. He's a hobby fabricator from Australia I think and makes ALL kinds of cool things with rebar.
