Eastwood tube bender with 5 dies
Eastwood tube bender with 5 dies, found one for 300. "bought it new for 500, used 2 times".. I low balled him for 250 just to see if he would do it.. he said no at first. then a week later he says yes.. should I get it or no.. I keep looking at the 60˚ angles... Using it for sliders and bumpers. No cage work. Maybe even headers.

I'd pass. Those things cant handle even .120" wall tube. Save your money and try and find something like a used JD2.

I was convinced i didnt need an expensive bender and got the "affordable tubing bender" which is pretty much the same bender as that one. I wish i just got a pro tools. These little benders are just a pain to bend a full stick and then kink on thinner walled tube. Ive made 3 bumpers and 2 sets of sliders and since day 1 I have regretted not spending the extra money.

A protools bender mount to bend vertically would be my ideal setup.:2cents:

thanks editmars. I found a lot of good things about it regarding like bikes etc but not automotive. I found a protools bender on CL for 150 hope its not gone. No dies..
