Thinking of buying a tube bender, which size round dies are the most useful for tube work??? Thanks Hank. :smokin:
Same size as the size tube you want to use.

But seriously, I have a Pro-Tool 105 and my only recommendation would be to not get the minumum centerline bend radius die for a given diameter unless you absolutely need it for something. For example, I have a 6" centerline radius die for 2" diameter tubing. Minimum recommended wall thickness is .120" for that die. If I'd have gotten the 7" CLR 2" die I could do .094" without wrinkling the tube which would give me more flexibility in my designs. Material, die lube, etc also factor in but my point is that you should try to keep your options available if you can.

Other than my issues, I the bender is great.

General purpose on my on/off road scout. ie: Rollcage general body protection. :grinpimp:
Got any sheetmetal left on that piece of shit farm equipment?

"general protection for my on/offroad Scout........" pretty vague :shaking:

I have a friend who has a bender...and just about anything you would want to fab up could be made with his 1" and 1-3/4" tooling.

Lets see pics of your Scout :confused:
