Got the bender

My tubing bender came in today..!! JD2 model three..very nicle done, well made, nice machine blue finish, the instructions are great..well worth the extra bit of cash over some of the others I have seen advertised..

Lots of die sizes as well are available..

I am now a happy camper..

Hey OMT,

Once you get the hang of it, post a couple pics of that puppy in action. Which dies did you get to start with?

Life intrudes..have a job to do sooo..rod will have to wait a bit..I am building a fabrication bench on which I will mount the bender..

Tip if you incorporate a 2" hitch reciever or two into your bench then you can mount your vises, benders and other tools by using a 2" square piece of tubing on them and just change tooling as needed..

I am building my bench out of a section of mobile home frame that I have..

Once I get caught up on chores then it will be back to cars..

I'm planning on doing the same thing with my work/welding bench. (on the two front corners and center) My bench has been an ongoing project as ideas come to light....I'm trying to incorporate my mini fridge, and cabinetry to the underside of mine for a smooth clean look, so I'm head scratching at this point. I'm planning on building a wall mounted "tree" for my bender, vices and bench grinder to store them while not in use. I may have square cut outs in my benchtop with pockets Then I don't need to pin the stubs in during use.

One thing to mention about bench mounting your bender is do you have the clearence for long joints of tubing, and also on compund bends sometimes your table can get in the way. Just my .02

I have a pro tools and it has rocked. I wanted one of these forever, and now I can bend whatver I want, as lng asits 1.5" or 1.75" hehehe

That is a good point..Since I need to be able to move my tools in and out of my blacksmith shop to storage the portable style of mounting seems to be the best..the rest of the time I use that bench for welding and such..

I got my JD2 here Van Sant

I got mine a couple of years ago and love the thing. I got 1 1/8" dies for building jr dragster chassis, and 1 5/8" dies for "regular" car chassis. I'm very happy with mine, and the folks at VanSant were very easy to deal with.

My .02
