Anyone have access to measured drawings for a small Bending Roll Machine. When I say small I mean no bigger than three inches wide between the side frames. I have seen machines made from Aluminum that are for model builders and Jewelry makers that look fairly easy to build. I would like a build like that. Anybody know where to get some nice drawings or measured diagrams??:))

Speedree ,

It might be possible to get drawings of a hand operated three roll bending machine in the back numbers of The Model Engineer, ( A British publication) The drawings I recall are all made from bright flat & round mild steel
Although the drawings are for a machine to take about 12" wide material , It was a simple enough design to scale down to any size you might wish

Sheet or rod?
I've got some plans for a rod bender that I found before I found a rusty little Diacro 1A cheap.
Let me know and I'll dig them up.

I'm not the original poster, but I'd like to see the plans for a rod bender.

Please note the attached links. Note: I intended to build one of these or to somehow integrate the best ideas of all. But was able to score a rusty but easily re-storable Diacro 1a for a little over $100.

This is the best I have for a shear. http://www.craftsmanspace.com/free-projects/sheet-metal-bench-shear.html

If you stumble on any shop built shear plans, then that would be helpful. I'm hoping to be able to do at least 16ga.
I understand that what I really should look for is a 24-48inch stomp shear - 16ga. But, I'm not quite sure where I'd find space to put it in my shop.

Hi Daryl
This is awesome... Did you ever get to build one?

Nope.
Picked up a 24inch finger brake for $400. Built a factory copy of the stand.
Picked up a $500 #2 bender with dies on a factory stand off CL.
As I was leaving he asked if I'd take his Diacro shear (no stand) with me.
I told him I couldn't afford it. I told him all I had left was $200 and that had to extend to the end of the month.
He told me to take it and mail him a check for $200 in a couple weeks.
I got really lucky!!
