- This new design incorporates an efficient
fabricated construction for the main magnet
body which does not require any heavy milling operations.
- It also has simplified hinges which can
be made on a lathe and do not require
expensive investment castings. Note that these simplified
provide a limited rotation angle (115 degrees) but they still provide
for a completely open ended Magnabend machine.
I will be progressively adding drawings and text to this page over the

It is hoped that this information will lead to
better construction outcomes
This page will relate to only a small bending machine, 670mm long, and
incorporate many new ideas, some of which will also
to longer machines.

The feet for this stand have been designed to eliminate
need for welding, they are lightweight and yet achieve a very rigid
connection to the column.
