Harbor Freight Bender




What do you think about this video?

terrablader: I don't think its setup right in this vid

HempsXI: ill try and do a video this weekend. but cant blame them for not knowing really, the instructions given are not very good and other videos on you tube not much better.

rickster348: what's a picket bend?

HempsXI: that is not how you use that thing, not even close.

Douglas Smith: what did you put in the copper tubbing to prevent it from binding in,

Frank Arias: Its is freaking coool!! men! amaizing!

dennisrburch: @paulbunions where's your video of you demonstrating your bender that was made in the usa?

romanivan123: Im wondering the same thing. The only item that I see available at Harbor Freight is the floor model compact bender. Ideally, I would like the version shown in the video, because I want to mount it onto a steel work table.

freddytk421: @BassicPeach yeah it works on rebar.

MonkeySpecs301: Great vid, can this bend steel 2' tubing?

Kevin Bodj: thats a pipe bender. try doing that with real tubing (ie 1.5x120 wall) and itll kink like theres no tomorrow

j822bosh: Freddy, Your videos ar much appreciated. I have been eyeing this bender for a few months. I wil wait until I finish building my steel weding table. So would this work for 3/8" 304 stainless rod. I figured out how to braze 304 with bare bronze and a fluoride type flux called "stay silv". The fluoride is the key to smooth braze joints and complete "wetting" of the stainless. I will post a video soon I hope.

freddytk421: @dnahoghunter I had to pay for it. it was like 60.00 or something like that . It comes with different dies and stuff.

freddytk421: @tmoney6913 Your the first to write first on any of my vids. lol

jstrunck: Freddy, I bought one just like it. The bender works good. One day, I might buy the attachments when they put them on sale. Good Vid! John

hp11208: harbor is my place also where i buy my tools from

wayne parris: They are OK for light work, anything heavy and the pins bend, even with hot stock. They are a lot less expensive than a Hossfield which they are based on but you don't get what you don't pay for. I have bent 3/4 round,hot with one but it turned out to be a one time use tool.

homer simpson: @TheRoccoloco1 It's meant for round bar stock or flat stock, there are no wheels with side supports for any tubing.

Keith Richards: rolerl die? i could do what you did on my truck bumper...

BassicPeach: will the bender work on rebar?

Robert Benson: I have kind of a off subject question...what video camera did you use? The video looks great! Was also trolling for info on HF benders/brakes, etc. when I came across the video here. =D

stayinstock: @xxkittenkiller I don't care where you buy tools,you get what you pay for. The bender is great for home or hobby use. I wouldn't buy it for manufacturing use, but i also wouldn't buy a $500 bender for hobby use. It's all about getting what you need at a fair price and Harbor freight does that.

Bob N: very very cool. looks like it will be one of my new tools.

valveman12: @VegaWgn You could make one but for the price, why would you?

Adrian A.C.: NO ME GUSTO POR UE TIENE QUE SER DE DOBLES EN DOBLES Y NO DE UNA SOLA

walperstyle: If you have a welder, you could make something better then harbor freight.

EchoFive Knives: I was wondering about this thing, does it get the Freddy approval?

freddytk421: @DustenDee Yeah it works like it should. It's hard to go wrong with something like this because it's so simple I don't see where it could break, and it's made of steel with no complicated parts so hopefully it breaks one day so I can have a reason to weld something.

thetarget317: COOL

j822bosh: Thanks Freddy! Have any idea how this will work on 3/8" 304 stainless rod?

freddytk421: Damn this video has a lot of views. I had no idea.

freddytk421: @j822bosh I really have no idea. if you decide to try it please let us know how it turns out.

ccbbtube: You should add the large roller dies in the center pin to form an even diameter bend. Instead of bending on the pin itself.

Nym Rod: Got this on sale with a 20% off coupon for a little over 40 bucks, a lot less than I expected. I don't use it all that often but it sure comes in handy when I need to something with it. It's more than paid for itself by making replacement parts rather than buying them plus there's no wait time for shipping. Made a replacement bracket for the lawn tractor that was NLA and was mowing again in about 30 minutes. Good for light stuff, haven't done anything very heavy with it yet.

VegaWgn: hell i could make one of those

Metalartsmeetup: bending is satisfying

freddytk421: @Spearfisher1970 neither will be good at tubing. they are for solid stock. if you put tubing or pipe in this it will kink it and flatten out.

Spearfisher1970: @freddytk421 Wow - thanks even more so for the fast reply. Have you seen anything at HF that would be good for 1/2" to 1" (or just under) thin-wall mild steel tubing without too much deformation (a little is OK)?

scott backer: could u bend exhaust pipeing with it?

jerry jaksha: @j822bosh I have bent 1/2" stainless rod with one of these. Jerry

dnahoghunter: Thats pretty cool! You get that for free too? How big of tube does it do? Wheres my welder? LOL

snocat: @DonRubinjo Uhmmmm. What the heck is tempered wood? Do you piss off a piece of oak?

freddytk421: @DonRubinjo I dont know about that.

Spearfisher1970: Thanks Freddy. The bender at 1:13 - are you sure it's the same only for floor-mount? It has all those collets with it, and I am looking for something to bend 1" and under tubing in nice looking and tighter bends. Did your table-mount bender come with the same collets?

TheRoccoloco1: I bought one and I don't know if it does squere tubing 1'' if it does not we'll take it back.

Miguel Angel Toro: anda a empabura a otro gil

paulbunions: freaking send our money to china why don't you?

xxkittenkiller: harbor freight. making the world's craptiest tools since 1968.

Kensorek: Bender robot version 0.1 beta

The VP: Is this how you're supposed to use the right angle attachment?

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
