The BQ1028 Tube Straightener was designed to provide the average shop the same results as much larger CNC machines. Using a simple 5 wheel straightening method it prepares coils of tube to be bent and installed. It works on any thin wall annealed tube from 3/16” to 1/2″ including stainless steel. The wheels are adjusted by a large knob on the top of the tool. Once you dial in the correct size simply pull the tube through the tool to straighten. The alignment wheels are made from ABS plastic and contoured to the shape of the tube. This leaves your tube unmarked and ready to be formed.
Finally a solution to straightening coils of brake tube. This tubing straightener easily straightens light wall tubing from 3/16 inch to 1/2 inch.The tool can be mounted in a vice or permanently mounted to a bench. All types of tubing can be used in this straightener, even stainless steel. Simply pull your tubing through the series of ball bearing mounted rollers and laser straight tubing comes out the other side.
Easy Adjustment-The easy to use adjustment knob makes changing tube size easy. Simply insert your tube and turn the knob. This fine threaded piece allows you to fine tune the tool to any tube size.
ABS Plastic Wheels-Unlike other methods of straightening tube the BQ1028 uses hard ABS plastic wheels. Hard enough to work up to 1/2″ tube but unlike steel rollers won’t leave marks on the tube. Each wheel contains a ball bearing system that creates a smooth action as the tube slides through.
Mounting Versatility-Easily mount the BQ1028 in a vice or use the bolt mounts to attach it to the side of your workbench.
Includes Tube Straightener Assembly.
How to Straighten Coils
Using the BQ1028 is easy. Simply bend the end of your coiled tube and insert into either side of the tool. Use the adjustment knob on the top to bring the rollers into position and feed the tube through. Once enough tube is clear of the wheels begin to pull the tube through with constant pressure. Use the adjustment knob to fine tune the alignment for your tube and pull the desired length of tube through the tool.
How To Straighten Pre-Cut Lengths
If you have a pre-cut length of tube that needs to be straightened it’s easy with the BQ1028. Simple push the piece through the alignment wheels and work it back and forth fine tuning the adjustment knob until all bends have been straightened.
