Look at post #19 here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/bend...18/index2.html
It will get you started building your own bender. I followed the instructions, modified it some to build mine. If I knew better, would have bought it pre-bent. Less hassle but doesn't give you the "true" DIY feeling.

Here's mine:

That's very nice! I agree with you on the diy feeling. But after pricing all the parts for the bender I realized it was a lot cheaper just to order from stainlessbrewing. Was hard for me not to do it all myself, but I am very happy with the results that stainlessbrewing got me.

Yep, SB is absolutely cheaper. If haden't bought $70 worth of stainless tubing, I would have gone that route too. Making the bender wasn't that expensive to make. Most of the supplies are things you have laying around anyways. Only real cost was the pulleys.
