This heavy-duty pipe bending machine makes light work of even the thickest tube and pipe. The Model 3 tube bender is effective and durable, yet remains affordable.

Ratchet Tube Bending

Although manual, this machine is still capable of bending larger tube without the need for assistance. This machine is also very accurate. The degree indicator ensures you can bend tube precisely, with clear readability of the bend angle.
The machine comes complete with all parts and is easily assembled for your convenience. So all you will need is your chosen Former and Guide Set Tooling and then you are ready to bend tubes straight out of the box. The Model 3 tube bender doesn't include a stand so a sturdy bench or mount is required.
