Eastwood's Pro Former Tubing Bender is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from better options available. I was looking online for tubing benders to make parts for drift cars. Control arms, cages, bashbars. I came across the jd2 and the eastwood. I regret my decision... Not only does the eastwood have a limited tube diameter and wall thickness bending capabilty, i find that 70% of my time using the bender is putting the correct dies in it. It is such a hassal and not worth the money. With the work I do the sizes of tubes always vary. And having to hassle the dies into place gets very tiresome and aggravating. Also didnt like the fact that there is no gauge to tell how big a degree you have bent. the jd2 however does offer this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price!!! I was looking for a tube bender. Ough! expensive when you need several dies roung and square. Being very satisfied with the 175 Amp MIG welder, I decided to buy again to Eastwood and to import in Mexico the bender. Clever design, well made and sturdy. The design with separate aluminum dies and the 2 steel forming dies, allow to make dies for other sizes like aluminum pipes and for square tubes. As it is now it's a bargain, for further development it's better than a bargain. As always the service was excellent, and I wish to thank Mrs Tina Spencer for her kindness and efficiency.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for Racing projects Although this benders description says it's great for chassis and roll cage work, it cannot handle the wall thickness it needs to for any racing roll cage. Probably good for light bending, not for a drag car though.

Will this bender bend 1.75 steel tube .095 wall??

Asked by: Rodger P
.095 wall tubing will be too thick for this tool. You would want to look into our High Capacity tubing bender.
