tube bender

Anyone have one to bend a piece of 1.75" .120 wall tube?

I have a stick left over from the tire gate I built and wanna make a bed bar with it. Just 2 small bends is all I need.

I do, but it may not be worth the trip for you. Free bump.

I would like in on this, I'll toss in a few bucks. Would like three bars very similar to the all pro bed rack but without the extra slight bend near the bed rail and a tiny bit taller....steaks and beer.

Well it seems hopeless may just have to pay some shop to do it, which will be an arm and a leg.

You can make the bender but have you priced the dies? They are insanely expensive. My buddy just got a bender and a few dies. He got the bender for a decent price used but had to buy all new dies for it. He got 4 dies (1", 1.25", 1.5" 1.75") and spent $800 on them

Up to 1.75" is pretty reasonable:

That'd work for my purposes. $299 with one die, or $699 for all five (1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.625, 1.75).
