DIY tube and pipe roller Answered

Anyone able to make a guide on how to create a DIY tube and pipe roller? Roller's is not the same as benders, benders make sharp bends while rollers make adjustable gradual long archs. Should be able to bend atleast 2" tubing and pipes. Best regards Tom

I am right now in the process of converting my hydraulic pipe bender into a hydraulic tubing roller. It will be able to convert back and forth easily. Needed a roller to build rigging for my airboat.

I found This link, describing the methods but it requires machinery that is beyond most diyers.

another place, the describes manual bending can be found here.

And, for now, finally more details can be found here.
I hope these help.

It looks like you can rig up a set of rollers like the picture. I've never used one so I don't know how the pipe is fed or pulled through the rollers. You would need to get the rollers that could withstand the pressure. Good luck.
