  • Scrolling Attachment for compact bender

    Just got around to opening my new HF bender model 31980. Was going to order the scrolling attachment that they recommend 36621. Alas this is no longer available. Anyone have any ideas on a moderately priced scrolling tool that would be a substitute or improvement?

    Thanks

      While it might fit the HF bender (HF's hole alignment leaves a lot to be desired) it definitely doesn't come with its own mount. The SO mount is optional and additional, to the tune of $49 extra.

      Also, the fact that the HF 36621 isn't on their website doesn't necessarily mean it's been discontinued. You can probably find one in one of their retail stores, in any case. That being said, I have the HF version - and I wouldn't buy it again. I recommend you just gut up and buy the Shop Outfitters instead.

        I came across these:

        Picture shows MK2/2H Scroll Bender with starting handle and scroll made with 3/4"w x 1/8" thickness flat strip metal.   (scroll not included with tool)

        FREE Downloadable MK1/2, MK2/2H, and MK2/3 scroll outline sheet. CLICK HERE for .pdf file



      • On the MK2/2H, the metal is placed in the slot of the center pillar. The metal strip is then drawn around center segment to produce initial part of scroll.
      • Depending on size of scroll required, metal strip is drawn around further with 2nd segment placed in position. For consistency when producing repeated scrolls, mark on base where metal leaves the segment.
      • Finally release finished scroll (scroll comes out flat).
      • _____________________________________________________ SPECIFICATIONS:
        Maximum Working Capacity

        3/4"wide x 1/8" thickness (flat metal strip)
        1/8" dia. (solid round rod) Max. Scroll Size
        5" - the maximum scroll size quoted is approximate due to the varying temper(spring)of steel. Tool dimensions
        5 7/8"w x 5 7/8"L x 2"h.
        Boxed Weight: 5 lbs. Other features
        Supplied with special starting lever to form initial part of scroll when using heavier gauge material. All tools are supplied with operating instructions. Please note that the maximum working capacity stated is for Hot Rolled Material or Annealed metal. Working beyond these limits or with material of greater hardness may reduce the operational life of the tool.

        I agree about the quality of the HF, but i haven't had any problems with mine even after 100,000 bends. Back when i bought my SO scroller it came with a base, i even tried to buy it without one. Glad it did because that base is the one i motorized. I only have had 1 prob with the SO and that was a simple fix with a grinder, maybe it got overlooked in the design...Bob

          The HF scroller has a flat spot. It's an easy fix. Build it up with weld and grind a proper contour. Credit to Sberry and Sundown for the FIX.

            Call around to some HF stores. I got one a couple weeks back from the closeout area real cheap.

              Don't feel too bad. I missed getting the basket twister attachment.
