Tech Tuesday...Tunnel Bunny

Back in the day, they used to call the working girls down by the Lincoln and Holland Tunnel, tunnel bunnies.
Anyway, I had some time to kill at work and decided to make a tunnel roller for an upcoming gas tank build. I can take my tunnel, throw it in the brake for my 90°'s and everything will be nice and professional looking, not caveman style.
It breaks down and assembles easily. Slide it together and C-clamp it to the bench. I machined some slugs for the rollers, everything else was done with a grinder and a little tig'n. Makes a nice bend. It's pretty self explanatory, just look at the pictures.
I got this idea from Special '79's YouTube channel. Look him up, he's got some great videos posted.
