The metal bender was missing the 2 parts I needed (right angle die and block die). I just went ahead and bought another full unit from Harbor freight. I put all the new dies on the old bender rack as well as the new handle and what is now a large set of extra pins and spacers. I left the new pedestal, old handle, and old dies off to the side in the metal shop. Someone could cobble together (most) of another bender from what’s leftover, or if anyone is in need of that kind of scrap, it might be interesting. The pedestal itself might be useful if nothing else. If it sits for a while and gathers dust I’ll dispose of it.
If anyone has any clever ideas about how to keep all the various bits from wandering off from the new bender setup, I’m all ears. I had considered a Tupperware that was cabled to the base or something.
