Eastwood Metal Rod Forming and Bending Tool

Product Overview:

Description

Easily Form Steel, Stainless, Aluminum Rod and Flat Stock:

Put the right curves into your steel and aluminum rods using this small metal tubing bender. The tool mounts in your bench vise to create repeatable bends of 180 degrees or more in round, flat and square tubes. A rod forming tool is often used to create exhaust system hangers and brackets. It’s also great for hood prop rods, pegboard hooks, wire storage racks and ornamental metal art. The industrial design and construction produce strong leverage to complete the best in seconds. Use it on round stock with a diameter up to 3/8-inch or on ½-inch wide flat stock up to 3/16-inch thick.

Five forming dies with diameters between a ½-inch and 1.5 inches are included with our metal rod bending tool. This produces a lot of options for gradual curves, sharp hooks and everything in-between. See the tool in action by visiting the Eastwood Garage. We offer many ways to form metal that have a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

  • Easily mounts in most vises

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The quality is there. I haven't used it yet. But, as I spent 46 years as an iroworker, now retired, I have know doubt that it will do the job. The quality is there. I will be bending up to 1/4" brass rod for whirligig drive/crank shafts. I don't see a problem using it for what I need.

What is the smallest ID for a 180 degree bend of 1/4” SS? The website indicates 1/2” but the product instructions say: “NOTE: The Center Pin may be used without a Die to create a 3/16” radius bend”. Can you please clarify? Thanks. 

Asked by: Tony
Never mind. I also see in the product instructions that the center pin diameter is 0.38”, which is very close to 6/16”, so a radius of 3/16”. The smallest die gets the diameter of the center pin to 0.5”.
