The RogueFab model 601 pipe bender is the best value on the market. It competes in price with machines that have nowhere near this bending capacity, versatility, and technical support. Our steel tubing bender is easy to use, accurate, and portable. You can add an “Hd Kit” (link here) to convert any M601 into an M605, so no buyer’s remorse here! Our current lead times are 1 to 4 business days for weld together benders (with dies), and 2 to 6 business days for powder coated machines (this includes packages containing tubing benders and accessories). This product is protected by US Patent No. 11529663.
The hydraulic cylinder (or system, there are options HERE) are sold separately (like it says in the photo above and later in this description).

Capabilities of M601 metal tube bender
We have the most affordable dies in the industry, and all of them bend 180+ degrees. You can forget about “90 degree 1 shot” benders that stop at 90. Our bender can do 94 degrees in one shot (m601 with MOST hydraulics and m605 and m625 models with any hydraulics we sell), and then all models continue and go past 180.
Bends Carbon and Stainless Steel
The M601 metal bender has been tested on carbon and stainless steel and works very well. Our line of tubing benders have an unmatched range of wall thicknesses that they can successfully bend due to their extreme capacity for thick walled tube on the M625 and their amazing thin wall range when equipped with the Rogue Fab Mandrel Attachment.
Other Supported Materials
Our M601 can also make S-Bends, which is shown in our videos section. Furthermore, it can bend:
- aluminum (round/square tube and pipe)
- thin-walled titanium for turbo manifold work and tubular titanium frames (when upgraded to a 605 and using our Mandrel Attachment)
While this metal tube bender can bend super thick DOM tubing, it also bends thin 4130 chromoly for roll cages, and can still make accurate 3D bends with ease on either material.
Are you still looking at manual tubing benders?
This modern machine was designed to run air/hydraulic (ram is sold separately, $99-249). Compare our maximum capacity to the competition before you buy, because nothing else comes close.
M6xx tubing bender: (assembled, ready to bend): 12”x30” floor footprint. Overall dimensions 12”x47”x32” (LxWxH). Weight 140-200 lbs.
M6xx Bender on Cart: 22”x34” floor footprint. Overall dimensions 22”x47”x68” (LxWxH). Weight 210+ lbs (depends on cart contents).
The best thing about our line of tubing benders is how they can easily grow with your shop. You can get the machine now as the basic M601 or the overkill-strong M625, and be up and running without spending your whole tool budget.
Down the road, there is no need to sell this machine to upgrade:
- You can add a mandrel attachment to bend extremely thin tubing.
- You can upgrade to pressure roller dies for more complex bend geometry and bending aluminum
- You can upgrade to a 9.5 degree per second electric/hydraulic power system with auto stops for repeat parts.
- You can even add a backstop and rotation gauges to keep track of bend spacing and rotation between bends on 3D parts.
Need storage space? We sell cart kits and completed carts for our machines. Want to get advanced? We sell the best bending software in the business, already configured for our machines.
This tubing bender is no bait-and-switch. It comes with EVERYTHING in the pictures except for the hydraulic ram. You can go buy the ram from Harbor Freight to save money on shipping, or get one right off our web page. Our web page is the single most complete source for information on tube bending. Read all of it in our Technical Index (LINK).
