1.5" die question

Should I get 5,6 or 7" radius and why?

Also for shock hoops would you get 1" or smaller?

What material are you going to bend? I think that dictates the radius...

He meant the thickness. Get the tightest radius you can for the thickness of tube you will be bending.

Then a 4.5" radius will work. It is listed to bend down to .095"
