Has anybody made a pipe bender into a tubing bender? The pipe bender does kink the tubing but if you go 2 size's down on the die it doesnt kink the tubing that bad. Any help would be appreciated.

Mac there are three different kinds of tubing benders. I believe that are termed compression, crush, and .....I can't remeber the last one.

Anyway, with each type of bender comes different degrees of strength bends.

One makes the diameter of the tube smaller at the bend then everywhere else.

One will wrinkle the tube on the inside of the bend.

Don't mess around and cut corners when it comes to the cage. It may work well for someone that has never been upside down or T-boned.

Buy a kit from Jr or csc and weld it up.
