Harbor Freight Pipe Bender Modified For Bending Tube




What do you think about this video?

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!

Lucino Rosas: l need bend 50 pces 1, 7/8 galvanice pipe, are you tinck this machine is good to do thes?

powercr250: Fill the tube with sand to prevent kinks

Fred VanOlphen: Great Idea! Nice work there on the radiator guard.

M Godinho: thank you; obrigado , good job

Tim Chartrand: If you fill the tubing with sand it will prevent it from buckling when bending as well.

Christian Lopez: v

Jtinnon: i wonder if I could bend 2"1\4 exhaust pipe this way...

unapro3: Maaate, I have just bought one of these with an air ram and i was trying to work out how to "mount" it. I have an engine stand dissembled in the shed somewhere, brilliant idea, you have saved me a lot of freaking around, thanks.

streetntrail: What are the support callers made of?

Jo Flores: great video thank you for sharing! your project looks great as well!

Paul Metcalf: I purchased one of these several years ago. It made four perfect 60 degree bends in 1" black pipe before it quit working. I promptly took it back, and finished the job with the second pipe bender, but it started getting spongy like the first one before it died. These 12 ton harborfreight pipe benders work great, but from my experience they develop internal leaks after a few dozen uses. Does anyone have a fix for the crappy jacks used in these things?

doobysnacks: All that trouble just to make the tool work the way it was supposed to in the first place....typical Harbor Freight drama. smh

Christian Lopez: im gettin one but ill stick with pipe on a pipe bender and get a tube bender for tube , 

Medial Fluxocity: sorry for my ignorance but what is the difference between pipe and tube?

patrick mcglone: That is great ideal. I have one of those hf benders and was very hesitant using it to do custom exhaust work, however after seeing your video , I can now proceed. Lol kidding aside Excellent ideal.

martony03: Nice video, you may try grease or candle wax on your collars helps with less kinking
