I am looking for a rail bender similar to the one pictured. I have the jack but not the bender itself. This is for bending 100 lb. rail. If you have one and are willing to part with it let me know.

Suggest you look into fabricating one using your jack. Doesn't look like it would be very difficult. I have an old L.B.Foster screw type bender for my 12# rail and have been thinking of duplicating it.

A couple of years ago I bought rail bender parts from either Nolan Co or Aldon....they had both jacks and benders of the type you are picturing in stock. Unfortunately I sold mine. However, I do have screw type benders for 70 lb and 100-lb rail, that I have not used in many years and they would be for sale if anyone has a use for them.
