Bending steel greenhouse hoops

beescornerSeptember 24, 2006

I'am so excided about my new greenhouse,I've got to tell everyone. My son built my greenhouse, bending the steel 1 3/8 inch tubing with a bender he purchased on the internet. He bent the steel tubing into hoops in just a few minutes but of coarse it took a lot longer to put the whole thing together. I always wanted a nice greenhouse but could never afford it. If you want to save a ton of money look these guys up.

Hi
Sure, as soon as I figure out how. I'm still new at these computers. I got a digital cam last week, so bear with me on this. Did you check ebay they the tools there also and are running a series of their tools at around $25.00 startup auction price. I bookmarked their ebay items. They sell there under the name tippergoat ( strange name)I posted a link to ebay below this is the same modle we got.

Thank you beescorner!
Don't worry about posting....I can wait, it seems tools are hardly ever shown in close up, I guess
they are afraid of copying the idea?

Hi
I'm still tring to figure out this cam and computer, no easy chore for this old ganny. On another note I had to get a taller 8 ft ladded to pick the okra today. It may reach 10 feet if the first frost don't get it first. I planted it in a veg bed with 50% composted cow manure, maybe 10% would have been enough?
