Rancidkidd: That is a sweet machine! I think they go for around $300. This is
motivating me to build a roll cage since i just bought a new welder
BillaVista: Thanks, that's kind of you to say. Have you checked out my new site at
billavista then the period then three letter starting with a c and ending
with an m.
Sean T.: some people think a garage is a living room for your car....
BillaVista: The tube I bend comes in 20 foot lengths and sometimes you want to chuck a
whole length to begin bending. By positioning it where it is near the door
and to one side, I have room to open the door and feed in a full length of
tube, as well as room on the inside to have a long length swing around as
you bend the last bit.
Blu Hyde: Well done.
BillaVista: @13098519you can purchase from a company called Polyperformance - youtube
won't let me post a link
jonahuys: Hi Can you bend an inox tube +- 32-35 mm outside. And wall 1.5mm Inox 321,
316 ? And how is the result? Smooth? Thanks!
RP: You could bot Holsclaw gear bender for less bends up tp 1/18" comes in all
sizes and simple to uses no holes just place in solid vise
Pablo Mendoza: @BillaVista Would you please upload a video showing some back to back
offsets? what's the minimum distance center to center when you have a
90-90, 45-45, 30-30? Thanks. Let's say 3/4" and 1/2" tubing?
letsgetverydrunk: good video. Is it also possible to bend steel rods? bout 1/4-1/2 inch?
BillaVista: Yep, one and the same
13098519: Does this machine maintain the cylindrical shape of the tube after
completing the bend? I am interested in making Light Guards, Roll Bars and
Brush Guards. I just do not want to invest in something that smashes or
kinks the tube.
Phil Ackerman: OK...a couple questions. Can I bend 1' SCH 40 6063 aluminum pipe in this?
1.32 O.D. I want a 4" radius which I suppose would mean the die is 8" in
diameter. #2 - How difficult is is to make two bends and have them come out
exactly on the same plane?
BillaVista: @letsgetverydrunk The smallest die they make is 3/4"
Adam Munich: Why install that directly in front of your garage door?
13098519: @BillaVista - Sorry to sound so novice, but how do you determine pipe from
tube (is a pipe solid and tube hollow)? And if its not too much trouble
where would you recommend buying this tool at?
Joshua White: Great video, really thank you for taking the time to make it. Spells it all
out in ways we all can understand.
memorycdrew: Yes, I have, I'm building my 78 HPD60 now and reference your stuff almost

BillaVista: @13098519 Round steel mechanical tubing is NORMALLY ordered and supplied
based on a specified OD and wall thickness. The ID is the result of these
former 2 specs. There are however some exceptions to this - most notably in
true seamless tubing. It is normally intended to be used for mechanical
purposes (i.e. building things).
kyblacksmith: NICE!!!!! What is the bigest size pipe it will bend????? Will it bend
square tube????? Thanks, Keep up the good work
theScienceOfFear2012: very well explained
memorycdrew: BillaVista as in PBB Billa Vista?
nelsonb busta: Chile... Espectacular ni compara con la caga peruana que vi recien
BillaVista: @kyblacksmith Max capacities are: 2.5" Round Tube (.120" wall) 2" Square
Tube (.120" wall) 2" Sch. 40 Pipe. Yes it will do square with the right
Abra kadabra: Can you make a 180 degree bend with it and if yes, please share your video.
BillaVista: @13098519 Pipe is ordered and supplied based on a specified nominal ID and
a wall thickness that is usually specified as a "schedule" e.g. schedule 40
pipe indicates a certain wall thickness) . It is most often intended to be
used to convey liquids and gasses, but as long as the correct material and
grade are used, it is perfectly acceptable to use pipe to build structures
as well (many bridges and other structures do so).
BillaVista: @13098519 As long as you use the correct size die for the material you are
bending (and make sure you use tube dies with tubing and pipe dies for
pipe), yes - it will bend the material without crushing or kinking it.
DogwoodRacing: They do sell a combo die for 1/2" and 5/8" tube, I bought one today for
MegaRosy14: how much is that machine?
Keith Richards: Too much damn work to bend a pipe...
john adams: Nice instructional video learned a lot, he should have statde the thickness
of the pipe to give the viewer an idea of the strength of the bender.
RP: you can mount a vise in back yard put one center of grass 3 feet deep what
did love it.
memorycdrew: Legendary, sir. Shake.
memorycdrew: Also, I'm confused all to hell and back. Will Detroit locker 225SL19B work
with a '78 housing? I'm seeing only '79, but I dont think there's a
Kevin Scott: it's a cool tool, but way too much preping to bend pipe.
