Is there someone else besides ProTools that sells model 105 dies? I'm building a tube bender and the friggin dies cost 250!!!

Or, anyone willing to rent a 1.75 dia die when I need to use it!?

Thats why Pro-tools will give you plans to build their bender and everyone on Pirate thinks its a big deal to build one for cheap, they are cheap. Its the dies that get ya&#33; I have most sizes but it would be a bit of a drive for ya.

im only 1/2 hour away... any time you need to use the bender just swing over.

Thanks, but I&#39;ve got a couple projects that are just a PITA to do long distance. Its hard enough building things at the shop, take it home, try it out, modify it a bit, go back to the shop, bend it more etc....takes days to do one little thing.

I need to finish the cage, tube the rear frame section out, rockers, bumpers, on the TJ. Then theres that little Suzuki project I&#39;m going to attempt thats 99% tube work....
