ROGUE Alpha air/hydro tubing bender, $595 with 1.75 or other die set




The Rogue Alpha Tube Bender kit w/dies is only $595 ($580 check/cash)
Shipping is $55-$103 in the lower 48, and we ship worldwide
All you need to add is the air/hydraulic cylinder ($63-85 at harbor freight, or we can ship you one for a little more)


180 degree Die sets in 3.5-"4.5" CLR are $199 shipped, no sale required... this is every day:
1.75"x4.5"CLR (bends .120 to .188 DOM, .250 wall with HD kit)

Finally there is an affordable solution to bending tube without mounting the bender the ground, buying adapter kits for hydraulic cylinders, or requiring you to rip on a 4 foot bar while you try to read a degree wheel you can’t even reach. Our kit comes with EVERYTHING you need except the hydraulic cylinder, which is available nearly everywhere (without paying shipping). Our Rogue Alpha Bender bends vertically to save space in your shop. It can bend the first 90 degrees without pulling any pins or using any ratchet mechanism (then you re-pin to bend more). It doesn't need to be mounted to the ground, making it portable. It can be operated by hand (hydraulically), or by power (air compressor). This tool is Made in the U.S.A. out of US made metal/materials and packaged in US made boxes.

What’s Included:
• 180 degree 3.5" or 4.5" CLR die set (you choose the size, 6.0 CLR adds $150-200)
• Degree wheel/pointer
• Base and all necessary parts/hardware
• Printed instructions

What you need:
• ~$68 HF Air/Hydro Cylinder ($89 w/o 25% off coupon)
• Welder to assemble base
• Can of spray paint to make 'er pretty

Most orders are still out the door within 24 hours!!! We keep EVERYTHING in stock. Call us and we can ship it to you same day if you need us to. All of our products come with the absolute best customer support in the business. We answer the phone and are here to help.

Just so you all know, the old thread's title was not responding to editing in the search results and thread listings... so we deleted it and started over.

Here is the Q&A from the other thread:
  • Will the 1.75 die bend .095 wall: Not the 4.5 CLR die. The 6.00 CLR one does.
  • can someone order additional clamps to help keep track of multi-plane bends? YES!
  • Square dies? YES! And we make dies based on demand. Let us know what you want.
  • What is your warranty? We guarantee that the unit will work well/as-described and that you can bend what we advertise with it. No tubing bender lasts forever, and ALL pressure dies are a wearing part like a brake pad on a car. If you wear through a pressure die quicker than you think is fair or bend something, give us a call and we will make it right. We are a good company that stands behind our products.
  • Does it bend .250 wall 1.75 tube? YES! with the HD kit, $49-$65.
  • Bend angle on a single shot? 96 degrees
  • Military discount? Yes, PM us.
  • International shipping? Yes, PM us.

Awesome! Another suggestion, look into an affordable electric over hydraulic setup! I borrowed a friends air over hydraulic and it was painfully SLOW! I pushed it aside and bolted the manual bender down

The bender worked on 1.75x.095 DOM with the 5.625 CLR die, bent to about 190 degrees. This image captures the distortion at the start of the bend. A longer pressure die should solve this problem. We will update again once we have new parts.

We're going to try to get 2.00x.120 to bend on a 5.625 radius later this year. What wall thickness do you bend in 2"?

Nice work from what I can see. Saw the you tube vid also. I'd like to see more pictures of the various pieces of the bender and some more pics of the bender from different angles and positions.
Also, which HF ram are you using?

This looks like a superior design compared to the bending arm design. I really like this. Can't wait to see what it does with the thick stuff. Keep up the good work.

We're glad you asked. These are coarse 3/8 threads machined over an inch deep in aircraft grade 6061 billet aluminum. They are not as strong as steel, but they are pretty beefy, and there are 20+ full threads that would have to yield and fail. We have tried to strip them with a standard length box wrench (about 6" long), and we couldn't do it. With a ton of use, and too much force, it could be possible to wear them out. There is room for thread inserts to be used for repair in the threaded die, which should last a lifetime.

If one of our loyal customers ever strips one of these out, we will send them another die that has steel thread inserts in it, along with a pre-paid envelope so they can return the damaged unit to us without spending their hard earned money. Hard earned money should be spent on tube, weld wire, and more die sets! This solution should minimize any down time.

I like that answer.
