I have wanted a tubing bender for a while so I decided to build one. I used some scrap steel machined and welded it to make the frame. The rollers took some imagination to make them with my Smithy 3 in 1. After cutting and boring the 2 ˝ round stock I ran into a dilemma.

03-22-2015 02:20 PM Leaf sucker cont.
I modified the steering assembly to give it a wider track. I have some side hills and felt I needed the stabilization. After doing additions to my shop I had some scrap steel roof panels to build the box. I had a hydraulic cylinder lying around so I build a lift mechanism out of it, I used a hydraulic pump out of a convertible being DC I can run it both ways. I had the chipper/shredder for years so I removed the leaf shoot and added a sucker hose in its place.

So every fall my wife has asked why no one makes a leaf sucker. (her words not mine.) I did some research on line and got some ideas. Now that the truck is done I had some time on my hands this winter so I thought I would build one. I decided to build mine with 4 wheels so I could use it as a stand alone machine. I went out to my shed and found some old lawn tractor parts that I saved from a tractor I scraped a few years ago. You know the ones that I should have but didn’t.

12-16-2014 03:27 PM Question from Joe Geisler
Last month Joe asked me a question. I answered it and tried to attach some pictures to my reply so a thought I would add my reply to my journal.
I got a chance to get out my garage and check out your question. As near as I can figure it is about 7".
I have attached some photos. You may notice that I had shimmed my bumper brackets as I moved tail lights lower and tighter to the bed. But it got too close to the bumper.
