I’ve been practicing on 1” tube to make simple 90” bends and still can’t get my calculations right.  

I am making running boards for my truck.  I need a 90, straight, then another 90.  

the total outside dimension needs to be 108”. I am using 2” tube on a 6.5 clr.

 I need a 8” piece that  flows into a 90, then a strait piece of x length likely 90” or so, then another 90 bend and the same 8” piece. 

Could anyone give me a hand.  Every time I practice with a smaller tube I am off on the calculated outside dimension.

Using the design calculator for a U bend with 108" outside to outside with a tube diameter of 2"

 

I am doing the following-

leg length of 12" 

Middle of Tube is 104"  (108-2-2=104")

CLR 6.0"

 

I cut 122.6" of tube

Place the clamp blocks at 39.9" from the centerline and bend away.

 

Thanks for the calculator- I wish I had seen it earlier!!

Sorry we had some issues with the calculators. We had our IT team fixing it. I am glad it helped out - Josh in customer service
