Does anybody know the radius of the dies that this bender uses.Also how easy is this to use to get repeated bends.I'am in the market for a bender and thinking about buying a jd2 but the ez bend is alot cheaper i know it only bends 90deg but i can't think of any bends in a racecar more than 90deg.Thanks

Here is thier website. [URL=http://www.midamericanonline.com/home.html]
They also make a 180 degree bender as well.
Thier website is under construction.
I believe the radius on 90 degree bender is
4" for 1" diameter tube
5" for 1.25 & 1.5" tube
and 6" for 1.75" tube

Do you own one and how easy are they to use. Are they worth the money?

I have owned one for several years, and built many cars, I don't think you can go wrong with the EZbend.It is well worth the money. the 2 small dies are 5inch radius, and the 2 large dies are 6"
I think they have a lifetime warranty on the dies.

I like mine, its not fast though.. the pipe is kinda hard to get out of the dies etc.

It comes with a video and if you use their system of measureing or use your own repeatablility is easy.

deffinitely get a foot air\hyd pedal for it I dont see how you could pump it myself and ever get done.

I have a pro tool bender and love it. I have not used the ez bender, but was wonder if you could get a true 90* bend with spring back using a 90* die?
