The Model 32 is essentially, a heavy-duty version of the Model 3 bender (made for over 35 years in the USA) but with a few extra features built in.
Many customers, bending larger sizes or wanting portability, may want to upgrade the manual machine to hydraulic assistance. Whilst this is possible on the original JD2 Model 3 bender, the Model 32 frame is designed and manufactured with separate pivot mounting holes allowing a trunnion mount turning on its centre axis, rather than the Model 3's side mounted block coming off of one of the frame mounting bolts. This trunnion design greatly reduces the possibility of seal wear from side loading on the hydraulic cylinder.
Another feature of the Model 32 is the built in anti-springback feature. This consists of 2 parts; a second toothed locking rack, and a drop pin assembly, both of which keep the bending process travelling in the forwards only direction which helps prevent crinkling on thin-walled tubing.
The Model 32 bender is manufactured from thicker and wider plates than its smaller brother. larger pins are needed for its maximum capability of 2.5" (with hydraulics).
In its manual guise the hand ratchet assembly is brass bushed for a smoother operation.
LARGE CAPACITY - Bends round tubing and pipe from 1/2" to 2 1/2" O.D. and square tubing from 1/2" to 1-1/2". This bender is rated to bend 2" o.d. x .250" wall DOM steel tubing. Also capable of solid steel up to 1 1/2" diameter. NOTE: To bend round tubing over 2" o.d. x .120" wall, square tubing over 1 1/2" or solids over 1" diameter requires hydraulics.
EASY OPERATION – The Model 32 uses a high-ratio ratchet mechanism to allows the operator to bend larger tubing sizes comfortably without assistance. For example, the average operator can bend up to 2.0" od tubing with a 3.2mm wall. 1.25" x 2.0mm sized mild steel tubing can be bent with one hand and 1" x .065" wall tubing with ONE finger. Dies can be changed in under 30 seconds. Bend times are typically in the 30-60 second range for 1" O.D. and above tubing using the ratchet mechanism. Hydraulics may be slightly slower or faster depending on the power unit chosen.
HIGHLY ACCURATE - With the degree indicator wheel standard on every Model 32, accurate bending is simply a matter of watching the pointer until the degree of bend you desire is reached. High contrast yellow markings on a black wheel provide excellent readability while bending.
DEGREE POINTER - Standard on every Model 32 is a quick adjust degree indicator wheel. Simply loosen the lower nut as shown in the picture to the right, rotate the degree wheel to zero degrees and using finger force only, tighten in position.
The Model 32 is our favourite JD Squared product and does a great job, both for the home fabricator and professionals alike. Like the Model 3, the Model 32 has over 300 available die sets which should cover all your projects from a boat handrail to a World Rally car chassis.
