bender dies

Im having a hard timefinding an anwser. I just spent the last 45 min looking on hereand came up empty (unless Im not looking for the right title or key words). That being said I bought a central machinery for a flat steel bending project I needed it for (fence deco project) I would like to be able to use this for tube anyone got a good link to buy dies on? Ideally I wouldnt like to modify the bender too much to where I could't use flat dies anymore. Thanks agan

Not going to happen. You need a true tubbing bender like a Jd2 or pro tools. What size tube? Ther is also a smaller bender on the market for stuff under 1 inch. I think eastwood makes it.

That $299 price is without any dies.. dies vary in price depending on size..etc. They have the die sizes listed on their site..

I have been trying to figure out what tube bender to get. Is the JD2 32 a good bender to go with? I can see myself bending up a new bumper for the YJ and possibly the JK. I kow that the dies are available in 90 and 180. If I get a 180 I can still make a 90 bend, correct? Also what size die is the must have, if there such a thing. I was looking at the 1.75 180 degree. Would that be a good choice for a start? If there is something better out there under $1000, please let me know. Thanks.

The model 32 is a great bender.
1.5 180 degdieisprobably the most popular followed by the 1.75 180 deg die
1.5 for bumpers fenders and rocker gaurds 1.75 for cagesandsome beefy bumpers.

Benders pop up used with dies included on pirate quite a bit. Verry often forunder $1000.

The model 32 is a good bender. I have a Pro tools 105HD that is basically a similar design. I paid about $700 for mine shipped with degree ring and 1.75"-6" CLR-240* die
