Default Side build---jd2 model 3 air/hydraulic budget build

So far I've bought the manual style jd2 model 3 bender with stand and 1-3/4" die for $450. I recently found some spare steel tube around the shop and decided to go hydraulic on a budget. I bought a 8 ton long ram air/hydraulic from HF for $72 - 4 x 3" exhaust clamps $1.99 each and a small piece of 1" channel stock. Here's some pics of how it's coming along maybe give some of you guys with these benders a cheap way to convert it.





last thing left to do is drill the 1" whole and cut the excess off the top and get it mounted.

Yea lol. I cleaned the whole thing after I finished welding that up actually. I've been busy but it's all clean and everything is coming in so it's time to start busting my ass to get the samurai done before memorial weekend.
