  • bend tubing

    I was asked to quote building a cab for a John Deere utility tractor. The guy pushes snow with it, spends 10-13 hrs at a time.
    This is not what I like doing but money is money, anyway my thoughts are, build a frame out of 1x1 sq. tube 1/16 wall, four sides, 1 removeable door.
    Sides covered with 1/8 polycarbinate, roof panel 18 ga. steel.
    The sides need to follow the contour of the rear fenders, but I am not sure how to bend the sq. tubing.
    Any ideas?
    thanks, Tim.

    You will need a tubing bender with a die for square tube.

    Another option is to use pre-fabbed elbows.

    Here is a link to a supplier of square elbows. http://www.quickfab.ca/

      Thank you for your response. The bend will be pretty large, maybe something for a ring roller?
