How would you like to use this equipment to bend pipe?

IF the other end of the chain going around the chain block is attached to an engine, then problem. [Linked Image]

Would be kind of easy to attach that to a truck's winch, wouldn't it? If about a team of horses*?

*preferably the Clydesdales....I'll watch over the wagon full of Budweiser. [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

I was a grouch all day today, you made me laugh. About the same assembly time as the current benders.

That guy on the right doesn't look quite heavy enough to hold that base down. Maybe he was just dense enough... [Linked Image]

No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.

Thanks Bill:

I just set up another album, and you are welcome to repost the images on your sites server, with credits as usual.

I have a book written by McGraw Hill in 1924 called: "Conduit Wiring" and during my trip home from Las Vegas, I snapped these while in my seat on the plane!

I kind of like that attachment to the water pipe in fig 619 I!

(And don't forget the Union Helper to carry the hay and sweep the straw for the horse/mule!)

The left hand of the guy holding the pipe looks to be too close to where the action is. He could get his fingers crushed between the pipe and the "cast iron sector". Or get hit by the roller if the strap holding the pipe breaks. OHSA would not be happy.
