vernon bradshaw: thanks!! I wanted to build my kids a go kart so I went to harbor freight and bought a 12 ton bender, and of course the first piece of 1"pipe (.122 wall) looked liked hercules bent it with his hands! then I saw your video and ran out to the shop to make a bracket like yours, only took about about 30 minutes to fab and now the bends are really great!! like night and day..
thanks again for the help.
Dodge Ram 01: Tube benders are for bending roll cages; frames, while pipe benders are used for bending pipe and conduit!!!! Do your homework and research! There is a difference!!!!!!

Mohammed Alsayed: Any one can help which tools help me to know angle for tube pipe when I bend by hydronic horizontal pipe bender??
Z71Ranger: It sure would have been nice to see it bend... DAMN... what was it a $2.00 piece of tube?
THOMAS K: could you weld studs on the other pieces , and bolt them on since you can't weld them to the rollers
Daxx Green: Great video pal
ThePhillipsBoys: How did you bend the >90 degree bend around those head lights with a 90 degree die?
Ryan Clark: im curious, how did you make that bracket(lockin collar) for the die? and is that piece on the top welded to it?
Dixon Cider: I like the horizontal mounting on the engine stand. I had been bamboozled many times trying to bend long pipe with it mounted vertically and the ends hitting the floor or walls.
Dixon Cider: Nice mod! I have used my bender with limited results on roll cages, exhaust, etc. I have tried heating and filling with sand, neither really seem to work.
Doc.Cali: right on!
