  • Anyone need a HF Bench Bender???

    Hey all-
    I bought it awhile back and have never used it, and never will. If anyone needs/wants one let me know. I hate to see it just sit in my garage when someone else could be getting a use out of it. Heres a link to what it is:

          If you guys were thinking I was trying to get $100 out of it...NO WAY! Hows $40 plus shipping sound?

                    Bob,

                    Are you happy with how it works?
                    I was actually thinking of building this:

                    http://www.blindchickenracing.com/To...bingbender.htm

                    but the dies alone are almost $200. Do you think it would be strong enough to do rollbar tubing?

                      Lets see if Bob comes up with the same answer. Which is, No, No way, Not ever and like that.....BTY, I do have one and its good for small stuff butt not roll bar tubing unless its for a Kitt Car. Of course its just my opinion, you are welcome to try of course

                        Dies are expensive no matter which company makes them. You can do what i did and spend 2 grand and buy a metal lathe and build your own when the need arises. I like my HF bender for the 49 bucks it was worth it. I have bent thousands of bends and never thought it would last this long. I just bent some 1/4x2" for stake pockets and they came out perfect. I use dies up to 7 7/8" OD to bend shepherd hooks by the truckloads. I also have built a Hossfeld copy and their dies aren't cheap either. I plan on adding a hydraulic setup to bend roll bar tubing. I have all the parts but no time. I like the http://www.shopoutfitters.com bender for small tubing. I have been to the Diarco factory in Canton Oh and looked at theirs and their dies aren't cheap either, even being a buddy with the owner. But as Sundown said it good for small stuff which is what i manufacture. I still have a Hossfeld copy in the corner for my scooter frames. I lengthen the frame design and can bend some big arc's almost 8'. But i have made all my dies to suit what i need at the time. But back to the orig question, its worth the 49 bucks. Here are some products of what i make in the yahoo groups...Bob

                            John,
                            It is a parts bender NOT a Tube or Pipe bender. Designed for flat stock and small solid rod.

                              You can bend tube in it up to 3/4" if you want to buy some expensive dies I bend square tubing in mine, but i have an expensive die maker machine...Bob
