A fact of life in every body shop is that things don't fit exactly right sometimes.
While weekend hobbyists may be comfortable with "redneck engineering," our more than 40 years of experience helping the DIY community has taught us that doing the job correctly is priority.
When it comes to bending metal, some mechanics think they can just put a simple bend in a part and solve their problem. Doing so incorrectly puts structural integrity and function at risk, however. Proper bending is especially important for tubes. An improper bend can create eddies or dams that impede the flow of exhaust gases or fluids.
That's why our selection of more than 4,000 products includes tube benders and other metal bending tools to help you get the job done right.
Eastwood Metal Bending Tools
Bending, curving, angling and otherwise shaping metal in your own shop is as simple as coming to Eastwood for the right equipment. Our tube benders and tube formers are the best way for DIY enthusiasts to add function and style to their rides. These powerful tools can be used to make tube frames and roll cages or just to add a cool hood ornament. The right Eastwood tube roller will quickly become a go-to unit for any fabricator.
Get a Pro Tube Bender
With an Eastwood tubing bender, you'll be able to curve metal tubes up to 180 degrees without flattening or kinking. Both our regular and high-capacity benders have a rigid steel frame that will stay securely on your workbench. The standard model is for mild steel and chromoly tubing while the high-capacity model can also handle stainless steel, aluminum and copper. Each bender either comes with a set of forming dies or has the option add on the ones you will need. If you are using rods for your hangers and brackets rather than tubes, a rod forming tool is an affordable way to get proper leverage.
Tube Notching Equipment
Sometimes you need great angled cuts in tubing for either functional or aesthetic reasons. Our professional tube-notcher will create accurate notches in tubing up to three inches wide. Use them to build custom tailpipes, go-cart frames or roll cages that are strong and stylish. A notch and hole saw kit will let you prepare the tubes while also boring an angled hole. Bundle both with a tubing bender for a complete bracket and pipe solution.
