Ordered a set of these today off a guy who makes em for those cheap ass'd HF rollers.

As much as I'd love to have a real tube roller, I'm only using it for a couple sets of handlebars, and some various other metal working type shit, so I couldn't justify the investment of a real one at this point.

Will let ya know how it works.

The general answer to will it do 90's would be no. It's designed to do more gradual bends. Will it do a 90?, Sure, but it would be on about a 3 foot CLR. (Center Line Radius)

I have a JD2 for bending tube.

I absolutely HATE to buy anything from HF, especially tools. But it'll serve my short term requirement.

Came from a guy named Troy from Swagoffroad

I think the dies were about $150. Might seem spendy, but when ya consider I've now got about 300 into a tool that other places are selling for well over a thousand, I'm doing ok. If I was gonna be doing real production with it, I'd consider a Baleigh set up, but that's several thousand. For the home user, I think this thing will get ya by.

Now for tube bending, I still recommend the JD2, Again, this is for the home user, not a production type enviroment.

Basically, you have to evaluate your own needs, and decide what you want out of your tools. Quality tools are worth paying for, especially if you're counting on them to make you money.
