What type of BENDER do you guys use?

Hey fellas!

Just wondering what type of bender you guys use?

I allready have a 12 ton hydraulic harbor freight pipe bender, and I like the simplicity of it, except for the fact i want to bend frickin TUBING.

I wish they made dies for it that bent outer dia. of like 1.5 or 2 in 1/8" wall tubing...haven't found any.

Do you guys usually swear by the JDsquared manual benders or what.

ANyone want to sell anything...bender or dies...?

Our club needs something bad, and VERY soon.

Thanks fellas

I've done up to 180 deg. several times and it worked well. The outside corners of my front bumper are the tightest I've got ON my truck but the times I've done tighter it's worked just as well. Yep,I'm runnin poop pipe also I'm happy with it,can beat the crap out of it and most importantly I feel safe.

Protools 105 (standard duty) with 1.75 X 240 Degree die and degree ring from RBS is what we are using for Project Blu.

I also have a HF Pipe bender that I used on my 4runner which is also 1 1/4 schedule 40 Poop Pipe.

Thanks fellas

My JD2 and die set was around $480 delivered to my door. Save your pennies, pool them together - it ain't *that* much money

5 people @ 100 each
10 people @ $50 each

When you are talking about a club possibly going in together - it is easily affordable.

Of course - I am ignoring the obvious pitfalls of joint ownership - howevr you should consider them carefully before a joint purchase is made

Club issue: We are a school club, so it will be the school clubs, but it could walk off when we leave

Radiuses? What kind of radius is good for dies for 1.5" x 1/8" for a toy exo cage, and for 2" x 1/8" normal cages or bumpers.

THis is for the JD2 or Pro-tools

Does anyone have any of these dies they want to get rid of cheap?

What are the main differences between the JD2 and pro-tools? I don't think the dies are capable are they? Any opinions to which is better from those who have used both?

i know this is kinda a lame question, but has anyone ever tried this thing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...824220155&rd=1

i mean they only go for like 50-70 bux, and at the moment i don't have a couple hundred to dump on a bender....obviously they can't be that great, but for some basic fab stuff, is it worth the money?
