If you’re planning on building a race car chassis, roll cages or motorcycle frames, you’ll need a proper radial draw tube bender.
I have started purchasing the dies I’ll need for bike projects, but you need the bender itself. Of course, you can purchase a bender frame, but I decided to build one as I had all the necessary tooling and steel available. This is part one of a five-part build series.
This bender uses Pro-Tools dies, and is based on their bender design built around a hydraulic bottle jack to provide the muscle.
