    Default Harbor Freight Tubing Roller

    Has anyone used that HF large radius tubing bender? I would be using it for light fabricaton projects on mild steel from .065 to .095 wall. Was wondering if it worked ok and how it held up to use.

    i've been eyeing that tube roller for a while now. i want to roll some .120 wall tube for some handle bars. i'm leaning more towards building my own heavier version for the simple fact that i have the scrap steel to do it. plus i don't know if that one will bend .120.

    I looked at it the other day myself and was considering it. Seems the dies alone would be worth the money. The tool seemed to be of only fair construction quality, like most stuff they sell. When I left the store I was wondering if China had stores full of crap made in the US?

    Question Which bend is right for you?

    As a person brought up on another thread. Are you talking about a tubing or pipe bender.??

    Default Roller vs Bender

    Other than making a circle, what benefits does a roller have over a bender.?
