    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not well built I purchased this in hopes of building a roll cage but in fact I will be buying a new bender from someone else first time I used it all the fluids leaked out of the jack, on top of that any tube you bend it leaves a flat spot on the bend not to mention it kinks the inside of the tube an leaves a bubble imprint on the tube from the wholes in the die from where they bolt on. Far from a (Pro) bender all I have now is a large paper weight wouldn't recommend this bender to anyone

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from better options available. I was looking online for tubing benders to make parts for drift cars. Control arms, cages, bashbars. I came across the jd2 and the eastwood. I regret my decision... Not only does the eastwood have a limited tube diameter and wall thickness bending capabilty, i find that 70% of my time using the bender is putting the correct dies in it. It is such a hassal and not worth the money. With the work I do the sizes of tubes always vary. And having to hassle the dies into place gets very tiresome and aggravating. Also didnt like the fact that there is no gauge to tell how big a degree you have bent. the jd2 however does offer this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor product! Bought this thing a while ago and just had a chance to use it. For one it is a pain to switch the die holders/ mount for the larger dies, better have a second pair of hands. Threw some 1 3/4 tubing in for a simple and shallow bend. the die left dimple in the tubing where the allen head is counter sunk into the die and left a flat side on the bottom side of the piece. Huge piece of junk!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second Opinion I bought the bender a few years ago and pretty much after braking 2 dies put it in a corner and forgot about it. A customer brought me some 1 inch.065 wall for his pedi-cab business. I told him that I can try and bend the 1 inch but explained the issues I had with aluminum and steel tubing. I will say it bend 80 degree bends very well with a slight very slight crease on the inside of one side but expectable in my opinion. The pic that I'm going to post is not the full 90 degree however today I did 4 true 90 degree bends with even less crease. I'd like to see about getting another 1.5 die to do some 45 degree bends in aluminum. Anyway I hope it helps. Its not a true tube bender for roll cages or even cross members I would be scared using such light gauge steel for a cross member. I cant say I would or would not recommend this product to someone. It really depends what you are trying to do. If slight bends with the big sizes and 90 degree with the small sizes is what your looking for then great but don't expect to us this item to build a Rock Crawler or a Roll Cage.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from improperly sized dies The one and one half inch dies have almost a half an inch of space between them when pinned into the bender. They need to be touching or almost touching. I bent some one inch. It was fine. The inch and a half is worthless. Glad I bought it off the scratch and dent table. Definitely not worth full price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bender but understand, "thick walls only" Bends 1/4 in.walls or better very well to 90 deg. provided there is little spring back in the metal being bent. The thinner the wall the less degrees acheavable wihtout collapes or distortion. Needs longer stroke jack to eliminate need to adjust in middle of bend. Good well strong machine for price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I need for a good price I am using this to bend aluminum tubing and it works very well. Surely there are better/heavier duty tools out there but for my needs there isn't anything that comes close at this price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't do .120 I bought mine in 2011 and just got it out off box. went to bend .120 1 1/2 and broke at 45 degrees. wish I had bought a better one and saved money in long run.
