Three Tube Benders in One

One of the most important tools you can have in your toolbox is a tube bender. While not as glamorous as a torque wrench or dial bore indicator, it performs a function just as valuable. It’s not only handy for automotive tubing repairs or fabrication, it also can be used for household fixes. Classic Tube has a great selection of handheld tube benders like this Triple Bender (#3755), which is powdercoated for long-lasting durability. This Classic Tube Triple Bender features three bending grooves for bending either ¼- or 3⁄16-inch (one groove does both sizes), 5⁄16- or 3⁄8-inch tubing. It will provide smooth bends starting at 0 degrees, and going up in 15-degree increments to 90 degrees. Both right- and left-hand bends are possible using the adjustable handle. It’s perfect for the do-it-yourselfer or professional mechanic, and covers all tubing sizes for most cars and trucks. How many times would this tool have come in handy for your projects?
