Eastwood Pro Former Tubing Bender is rated 3.4615 out of 5 by 26.
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 1 out of 5 by from not well built I purchased this in hopes of building a roll cage but in fact I will be buying a new bender from someone else first time I used it all the fluids leaked out of the jack, on top of that any tube you bend it leaves a flat spot on the bend not to mention it kinks the inside of the tube an leaves a bubble imprint on the tube from the wholes in the die from where they bolt on. Far from a (Pro) bender all I have now is a large paper weight wouldn't recommend this bender to anyone

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second Opinion I bought the bender a few years ago and pretty much after braking 2 dies put it in a corner and forgot about it. A customer brought me some 1 inch.065 wall for his pedi-cab business. I told him that I can try and bend the 1 inch but explained the issues I had with aluminum and steel tubing. I will say it bend 80 degree bends very well with a slight very slight crease on the inside of one side but expectable in my opinion. The pic that I'm going to post is not the full 90 degree however today I did 4 true 90 degree bends with even less crease. I'd like to see about getting another 1.5 die to do some 45 degree bends in aluminum. Anyway I hope it helps. Its not a true tube bender for roll cages or even cross members I would be scared using such light gauge steel for a cross member. I cant say I would or would not recommend this product to someone. It really depends what you are trying to do. If slight bends with the big sizes and 90 degree with the small sizes is what your looking for then great but don't expect to us this item to build a Rock Crawler or a Roll Cage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Upset I have a small fab shop really didn't need a bender I wanted a bender. I read a few post on how some people purchase the bender and a had a few dies brake. After a few weeks I decided to give Eastwood a shot. The first time I used it to bend 1.5 090 wall 25 degree bend I broke the die. Got anew die broke it again. I asked to speak to a tech to ensure I wasn't doing anything wrong. the y couldn't find anyone and she assured me I was using it properly. Never asked me questions not even what I was making on type size of tubing . I only bent 090 cause that's what I had my intent was to bend 120 to make some step up bars or rock sliders as we like to call them. I went back a read all the specs and it doesn't even bend 120 wall. Now when I did my research I read that it would do 45 degree bend just not 90. I clearly mis read it and I am regretting ever making this purchased . I was I guess you can say successful in bending 120 aluminum 90 degree ut it cracked the tube and kinked it bad. I welded it up and grinded it up and works fine but wouldn't be able to sell something so poor in quality. Should not be called pro bender Im hoping to call in morning and get a refund.

Will this bender bend aluminium pipe and tube within the wall thickness' specified, without kinking and or flattening the tube or pipe??

Asked by: LostAussie
As long as you observe the wall thickness specs of the unit you should have no problem bending aluminum pipe.
