Here is a picture of one I built. Used the machine to roll pipe into the handle. A round wheel handle is much easier to work than other handles.

What size tube do you expect to roll? You will be surprised how much effort it can take to roll tube. The industrial term is "angle roll" for the machine used to radius bend metal and does tube and pipe with proper dies. The dies will be the tough part. Wood and plastic can be used with the right machine design. Otherwise a lathe and radius attachement (another home made tool) will make dies...or expect about $100 each for purchased dies. www.pro-tools.com was the inspiration for my bender. A hunt around the web will toss up dozens of examples.

Damn hippies got plans for anything....

On the downside, the illustrations (you have to click on the "images" links") aren't much help...but on the upside you can also find plans to build a kite from recycled materials.

Pictures of the ring roller I made I mount a 20 ton air powered bottle jack in the top to push down on the top roller. I tried a 8 ton jack but it would not even budge 2" tubing when I was making the backbone for my frame. I use a 1/2" ratchet with a 3 ft long bar welded on to turn the bottom rollers, chain and sprockets I bought at a farm supply store. I used 1" 4130 bar for the shafts. The sideplates I had waterjet cut from 12mm thick aluminum plate as I was getting some other things cut at the same time.

Drawing of the side plates for the ring roller I built. The center slot that the top roller runs up and down in does need to be extended down at least another 3 inches I learned that after getting together and it would not go low enough when I was rolling my frame backbone.

Where did you get the rollers from? Did you have them made or did you buy them somewhere? Also, what do you do when you move the bottom two rollers to the other holes? Do you have extra links for the chain or what???
