all-
i'm going to measure the whole thing and hopefully have some autocad drawings done in the next week with a write up. i can export a .bmp or a .jpg out of autocad and paste it into a word doc or something for those who do not have autocad...
Please e-mail a copy of that in Word form if you get time.
Thanks,
Elliott

correct me if I'm wrong but you are the guy that makes custom aluminum knobs right?
ok I'll admit Captain Obvious and Sergeant Smartass are on their way but...
how long does it take you to turn down an aluminum ( soft ) knob on your lathe?
how long do you thing it would take to turn out a hard steel die ( then cut in half ) on a much more expensive lathe?

Ghetto Tube Bending! I saw it on Jesse James' show.

I think this is how I'll do it.

I saw that for how he was shapping a frame for a bike but i wouldnt' do it for something that is supposed to save your life. When you heat up metal to bend it you are GREATLY changed the composition of the molecules in the metal. And making it very brittle unless you cool it down VERY slowly allowing the molecules to realign themselves. When you heat it the carbon moves around and creates stress concentration points inside of the metal do to it clumping together. It also makes for a STRONGER metal becuase these clumps of carbon don't allow the molecules to shift and bend as easily as it did before... BUT
you pay for it in impact resistance. Just food for thought. Since the duty of the Roll Cage is to absorb impact in a roll over. [img]smile.gif[/img]
</font>[/quote]easy - SAND BENDING - there was an article on how to do it being passed around on this site - at least I think it was this site - all the practicality of being cheap all the advantages of being safe - happy bending

if you follow the link that I posted it shows you in pretty good detail, and even gives measurements for a lot of things...

if you look at it for a few minutes you can figure it out... in my mind, the hard part is the die... Racer32 is the expert here..
