JMR Adjustable Tube Notcher Mount

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

JMR Manufacturing is known for new and innovative tools.  The NEW JMR Tube Notcher mount is a simple design with a lot of useful function.  The notcher mount mounts into a receiver.  The receiver comes standard on JMR fabrication tables or you can weld a receiver stock under the edge of your fabrication table.  The receiver stock is the same size as you would find on the back of most trucks for towing.

dsc_2808With the tubing notcher mounted to the side of your fabrication table you can no open up many new possibilities with the tubing notcher.  You will notice the main shaft the notcher bolts to is clamped into the billet aluminum base.  With the clamp loose you can adjust the notcher mount up and down with the bearing and allen screw.  You can also rotate the notcher mount if needed.  OK… I know some people want to know why you would want to adjust the height of the notcher.  Simple, the JMR Tube Notcher Mount allows you to adjust the tube notcher to the tube you are working will sit flush with the fabrication table top.  If you change tube diameter you can simply adjust the tube back to the table top.  Once you have the tube sitting on the table top you can easily notch in plane with bends in the tube.  For instance if you have a bend in the tube simply place the tube in the notcher and lay the tube flat on the table.  Your notch will be in plane with the bend.  No need to break out the level.

The cool part about this it you can build fixtures on the table to hold a bend at a certain rotation to make the correct notch every single time.  If you need to make sure your end product is the same every time this is the way to go.  The same goes for notching straight pieces of tubing. You can build a stop on the table to slip the part into the same depth every time.  This feature will be very helpful to those building repeat parts over and over.

The notcher mount main body is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and hard anodized black for a long lasting finish.  The main shaft is solid steel with a polished surface.  The main shaft sits on a bolt with a sealed bearing.  The shaft rotates on the edge of the sealed bearing so the height does not change while rotating the mount.  The main body is designed to slide into 2.5″ box tube with a .25″ wall thickness.

JMR Rotary Tube Bender / Roller Combo

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

dsc_2689JMR Manufacturing has been busy in the shop building a new rotary tube bender.  The new bender has a 3 inch capacity.  With this one machine you can bender round tube, round pipe, and square tube to a 180 degree bend without stopping.  The new JMR bender also features a tube rolling attachment.  With the JMR bender there is no reason to spend extra money to buy a roll bender.  It only takes a few minutes to install the roll bending attachment to the machine.

One of the great features of this machine is all JMR tube bender dies will work with the machine.  Most Pro-Tools and JD Squared bender dies will work with the machine.  Be sure to call with questions regarding tooling you may already own and how it will be able to work with this machine. 120, 180, and 240 degree dies will work on this machine.

The new JMR Rotary Bender sells for $9995.00 plus shipping.  Be sure to call for estimated ship times.

JMR Sportsman Tube Bender

Monday, November 29th, 2010

JMR’s New Sportsman Bender is designed for the fabricator on a budget who refuses to settle for import or domestic crap. Features alloy steel arms, offering the high capacity JMR is known for, bearings/bushings at all pivot points, and an all new 5 speed drive mechanism. Retails for $249 with pictured degree wheel.

Because JMR is offering the Sportsman Bender at such a low price we will not be shipping it with a handle.  The reason for this is a couple reasons.  It saves JMR money and lets us sell the bender a little cheaper.  The handle for the Sportsman is simply an 1.5″ OD round tube.  Most people have access to a 1.5″ OD round tube.  The other reason is we are able to ship the bender in a smaller box saving you money.  The added cost of shipping the handle would be more than you supplying the tube yourself.  This bender might be cheaper than all of the others on the market but DO NOT BE FOOLED.  The JMR Sportsman bender is jam packed with features the more expensive benders do not have. Yes, you do get a free degree wheel and pointer with this bender.
