Re: Tubing bender on ebay, good??

Those work ok. I built my cage with one. If you dont use a heavy wall tubing, it will just crush though. I used 2in tubing cause cause 1 3/4 pipe is about 2in on the outside. the dies are pipe so tubing really doesnt fit well in them. But it will work after some practice and playing around with it. Dirtdog also used one to build his cage.

Now to the other side of the story. Once you use a good tubing bender, the other bender just is too much work.

But like i said, for a cage like mine that only needed two bends it was fine. But for a cage with a lot of bends have fun.

Re: Tubing bender on ebay, good??

yeah, those are half fast at best. I got one.
It works great on some sizes and terrible for others.
