Harbor Freight Pipe Bender Modified For Bending Tube




What do you think about this video?

Gas Axe: the dies are the problem.
they are sloppy and need to be shaped.
I had to build mine up with mig welder then sand them out to make the fit nice and tight.
lots of work and BS but works great now.
sand doesn't work.
the problem is the die and poor fit.

scooter: Nice cj, what have you got in it?

Creative Customs: Fill your pipes or tubes with sand and pack it before sealing off each end to keep sand compact and inside the pipe to bend without any kinks.

robert bonham: have u make exhaust with it

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!!!!!!

dave stcyr: whats better, using pipe and not haveing kinks or dom with kinks...

Matt Spencer: That homemade protractor is bad ass!

Cayman 4x4: Can you used this for exhaust pipes?

turbooomann: very nice work & a good vid...thanks for the advice!

bowlweevil: put a heavy rubber band on your protectors to hold them in place while you do your setupĀ  good add on for bender informative video thanx

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.
