....if your getting one for making roll bars, frames and such make sure its a mandral bend one. The ones that aren't mandrel bend, such as the ones most muffler shops use, make a bend that leaves a 'kink' in the bend {looks like a 'pushed' in spot under the bend}. Of course, mandrel bend ones are more expensive. I've seen web sites, books and magazines {Hot Rod Magazine, I think} that recommend different benders but can't remember where I saw them. To pass N.H.R.A & I.H.R.A rules you must use mandrel bends, plus they look better.... Hope this helps... Bill....
