TOOB Bender

Control the bending. Make what you want to your spec.

Off-the-shelf tubing will never put the bends exactly where you want… at the bend radius you want… to the degree of bend you want… in the alloy you want… with the butting profile you want.

Whether you’re into subtle or whimsical bends, you need the capacity to bend on your terms.
  • Produce smooth, ripple-free bends quickly and effortlessly without tedious hack methods
  • Control what alloy and wall thickness/butt profile tubing you want with the bends just how you want them
  • Three radius options for tighter and more relaxed bends
  • Interchangeable dies from .5″/12.7mm to 1.625”/41.3mm diameter, plus 27.2, 30.9, 31.6mm
  • Dies swap in under a minute with one 6mm allen wrench
  • Small shop footprint with no need for a heavy-duty mounting point
  • Bend is driven by a leadscrew with a cordless 1/2″ drill for ease and control
  • Phase arm for multiple bends in the same plane (s-bends)
  • Loading and unloading tubes is fast and easy with the quick-release clamp
  • It’s very pretty to look at 🙂
  • Bending dies have an angular scale for documenting bends and achieving process repeatability

I designed this bender specifically for bicycle framebuilding. As a framebuilder, you need nicer quality bends than what can be achieved on benders designed for making automotive roll cages. You need a bender with a shop footprint and a price point that’s realistic for a small-scale custom builder.

My bender can produce bends that are ready for high-gloss paint jobs. No fussing with sand or heating up the tubing. Load the tubes, bend the tubes, and move on.
