Re: [metalshapers] (Metalshapers): Bender, shear, and roller
- if you are contempating a rollcage build, the "pipe benders" aren't want you want.- the are designed for thick walled "black pipe" and the thin walled tubing for a cagewill not maintain a constant diameter required.- you want a manderal type bender, which maintains a constant dia thru the bendas for ring roller, I got one of these Speedway units from Hornier a while back when they were just $100, now $199 (the MFG label is gone.... but likely china built but better quality then Harbor Fright)http://www.homier.com/detail.asp?SessionKey=IN93Elf%2ftyY3MarPT0dyfBSOMES29P%2fdZpY31DgwGAhBvBwJ4Dm%2fq%2b1LZvMTmlyade1SRQ%2bEyh2B&dpt=8&cat=241&sku=04647

Any opinions on the pipe bending kit for 190$ and the throatless shear by woodward fab? The pipe bender comes in a case, some dies, and bolts or sticks in the vise. Nothing too big, one inch is the largest diameter. Building roll cages is not my cup of coffee. Lowbuck has a tube bender that is cad plated. What is it like? Where can I find a ring roller? Everything on the internet is built in a garage. I'd like to find one sold by a company, excluding harbor freight or anything made in china.
