For example, the average operator can bend 1 3/4 x. 095" wall round mild steel tubing 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. And above tubing using the ratchet mechanism. Hydraulics may be slightly slower or faster depending on the power unit chosen.
With the degree indicator wheel standard on every new Model 3, 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.
The new design has twice the bearing area of the old style for longer life and provides ample leverage for tube sizes up to 1 3/4. However, if more leverage is desired for tougher to bend applications, you now can simply obtain a longer piece of standard 1 schedule 40 pipe and insert it into the ratchet lever.Comes standard with a pull pin so the handle may be retracted out of the way when not in use saving valuable floor space. Redesigned in 2009, they are half the weight of the older style and utilize bolt-on inserts that are on average 243% stronger.
Insert pads are machined to within 1/1000th of a degree to the theoretically perfect angle for optimum bend quality. Inserts are made from a non- galling bearing material to prevent scratching of expensive material.Delrin inserts are also available for use with polished aluminum. A roll pin holds the follow bar in position while loading tubing. With over 600 hours in R&D and tooling preparation, we are confident these are the best die sets on the market today.
