Tube bender

I'd kinda like to get a cheap tube bender so that I can get super pissed and ruin a bunch of tube/pipe but would like to hear opinions from others. I like the price of the pro tools 105heavy and the JD model32. Both are $400 and look nice but looking nice and working might be two different things. It will mainly be used for 1.75" hrew or 1 5/8 pipe and maybe some 1". If I have to do something real serious I'll seek out a professional. lol

Anyone have one of these and can weigh in? Maybe a model I didn't list that's equal in size/capacity that would be a good choice? Post up! Thanks!

I have the JD model 3 manual bender, 1.75 DOM is pretty easy. I would buy it again.

I saw the model 3 and wasn't sure if it was too light weight. If you're happy with it then I can throw it on the list.

I have the Jd2. I've since moved it to the vertical position. It works extremely well, however I do have a couple complaints.

1. It seems loose, and hard to keep your material level when making multiple bends.

2. It is very hard to see your initial bend mark once its in the bender.

Would I buy one again? Probably so......

I am. iirc, the only difference in the 32 is it will bend larger tube, so its a little more heavy duty. I have no plans for anything larger than 1.75. The 3 is no light weight though, def up to the task.

I have used the jd2 also mounted in vertical position with air over hydro, no complaints here at all!

That's all I'm lookin to bend is 1.75 dom. If it will do that no problem then I'm good.


Rebelrider Big4x4ride, what jd2 do you have? Model 32 or model 3?

I've also mounted mine on the old engine stand. I can now use it horizontal, and rotate to vertical very easily......

I have a Model 32...The arms and all the pins are thicker, but essentailly it is the same as a Model 3..Just beefed up so you can bend 2" by .25 wall stuff...
Like 90'K5, I'll probably never do anything over 1.75" for my stuff, but I wanted to be set up in case someone else ever needed me to...I got mine from tricktools, with 1.5"and 1.75" dies and bendtech together as a package. I put the Swag ram mount on there for the HF 8 ton ram.
Im happy with it and would buy the same one again.

My only 2 complaints is the degree wheel that comes with the bender is not engraved. It is a painted on type sticker material that flakes off...I thought about going to a good plasma place and having a good degree wheel cut out. But it aint broke, so Im not going to fix it yet. I also had to gusset the top of the stand that came with it because it started to sag after bending long sticks of tubing...
Here is how mine is set up for mobility:

I keep a 50' hose with it...

There is a Model 3 for sale in Austin.TX with 2 dies 1.25" and 1.75" both 180* dies, for $850..and he says he has a notcher and bendtech to sell also...thats alot cheaper than what I paid and you could eventuaslly add in the 1.5" die and you could do a whole bunch of different projects.

Haha! I feel ya! I know once I get it I'll be ruining LOTS of tube. I can see lots of stuff being thrown in my future followed by strong language.

Thems purdy. I use a harbor freight kinker for all of my pipe kinking needs. You need to sleeve the rollers to not cause dimples, but other than that it works great. The dies are for HREW(poop pipe if you will). Up side is that 1.25 sch40 is the same as 1.625 DOM on the od so you are golden there. For $79.99 you cant beat it....or in my case a 30 pack of Bud on trade.

I'd like to have a good bender and if I ever get serious and do an entire chassis I will get one. But for small stuff here and there the harbor frieght job works. Between my brother and I we have probably done 50-60 bends and no dead nuns yet.

I have the pro-tools 105 and love it. I have the same complaints on it as rebelrider does his JD2. I could easily get the slop out but it hasn't really been a problem just a little annoying at times. Otherwise I have been very happy with it. It has done a couple full chassis and 3 or 4 cages.
