To make a roll cage should be continuous tubes, not pieces spliced together like welding curved sections to straight sections. If this is the bender you're thinking of buying



DON'T DO IT. That is a PIPE bender and will kink/flatten roll bar TUBING, which will weaken the tubing. Pipe is sized by ID, tubing is sized by OD, so the dies for a pipe bender are not the right size for tubing dies.
