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
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
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.
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
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.

Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
