    New shop toys are always fun. What's the project? Pressing bearings, new exhaust, bending tubing for bumpers?

    You have to buy the die's separately for each size of tubing. You won't get manderall quality bends. You end up having a long dimple on the inside of your bends, but it still works for a lot of stuff. 4.3xj has some maybe he can post some pics. Hint hint.

    You would have to have the dies, but yes you can bend steel pipe with it. I have one just for that. But not as good as a dedicated tube bender. Congrats on the purchase

    OK, later on the pic. But I did use mine to make my bumpers.

    I also picked this break tool up recently, it works pretty good. I hate drum breaks and I'm converting right now! The tool clamps down on the spring and you can get good leverage, well worth the 10 bucks
