Looks like easily enough pressure to bend DOM tubing. Mandrel though?

Nice! I built almost this entire frame with one similar to that.

It's a tubing bender, from Speedway, 1.75" mandrel, $399 shipped. It has pretty good reviews, and you can order it with almost any size pipe mandrel you need.
http://www.speedwaymotors.com/3rd-Gen-H ... ,6614.html

I got this mandrel because a 1.75" DOM tubing with a .120 wall thickness is legal to compete in almost any racing series in the US except NASCAR or pro rally. :rofl:
