tube roller / roll bender?

Anyone know where to get one of these, besides Eastwood? I'm looking for a manual one that will bend square and round tube up to 1.75". thanks
Gary

I have one of these.. http://www.jd2.com/ the model 3 works fine..and one only needs to buy the particular dies that you use all the time..

http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/bendin_tube/index.html This is a good article on tube bending..

You might try Enco tools or Medford tools may have one..If you only have a few hoops to make then it may pay off to go see the local guy that does ornamental iron as he probably has one of those machines..

Two of my companies; E.P. Industries and Customs By Eddie Paul is best known as the go-to company for extreme deadline situations in both the automotive and film/television industries. We are the ones who built vehicles and special effects for major productions such as Grease, the original Dukes of Hazzard, CHiPs, E.T., Mask, Nightmare on Elm Street, and more recently, Fast and Furious 1&2, Triple X, and the Disney movie CARS.

As a result of the high-profile work that we do, we are frequently and regularly featured on build shows on the Discovery Channel, History Channel, TLC, CBS, and NBC. We have an ongoing publishing contract with Motorbooks International, Krause Publishing and Koolhouse Publishing to produce books and magazine articles in which we feature our projects and the companies that sponsor our builds. And we have the hottest new web show on the Internet called Deadline TV in which we feature all of our high-profile work such as the Disney cars and our latest for Yamaha Motors called Project SX230.

The main reason I have started a web show is because I refused to sell my sole to Discovery and become a jerk like some have (no names) but, to get my show really going I need numbers, and I get those number by views, I have no investors and rely on sponsors and those sponsors want to see how many people view the site.

I have one segment up How we built “Sally the Pixar Porsche” the next will be how we built Lightning and then Mator (the tow truck) I am trying to feature building and not fighting (sorry OCC), each segment will have behind-the-door techniques and lots of cool tools. My plan is to have some hot rod builds in there as well, but I first have to get these commitments (first four segments) finished first.

Please visit the site at www.*****.net and join the forum and let me know what you want to see. I will start pushing older stuff if there is enough interest. I have never asked for you help before and could sure use it now, thanks in advance.

Sounds like you do just about everything.

tube bender

No, that was a mandrel bender made by Bend Pak, the one we make is a “tubing roller” not a “mandrel bender”. the tubing roller is for bending long or large radiuses or varied radiuses and is hand operated or can be fitter for an electric motor such as what Jack at Roadstercycle.com has done for his tube rolling jobs. This (our machine) is more for custom limited run projects, you can do what I have done on my Mustang but I think the mandrel bender is much faster for this job where I was doing 12 85 degree bends for the bumpers. Hope this is clear it is a bit hard to explain. I ma thingk about doing a new DVD on tubine bending and rolling if threre is enogh intrest in it...

Just curious as to what Bendpak you use? They make a lot and arent they all exhaust pipe benders? Can you bend heavier with an exhaust bender?
