Description

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).

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:

  • brass
  • copper
  • 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.

Flexible Design

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).

Are you worried about learning how to bend tube? Or learning a new machine? Ours is the easiest to use, and able to make to most complicated bends. Let us show you in under 7 minutes:

Want to see a whole project from start to finish, and even more bending tricks that are 100% unique to our design? Watch this video:

How much work is it to weld it together? Very little, it’s so easy a novice welder can do it:

How hard is it to change dies? Super easy! Here is a video of a die set change;

    Awesome tubing Bender I got the M60 one and it performs amazingly just make sure you tighten your clamp lockdown and the fact that it tells you on the side how many Inches per degree u bend is a nice feature that I really really like and let’s be honest the tubing benders just look awesome vary nice styling There was a mistake with my order on the slide blocks but they instantly took care of it and send them to me so has been nothing but an amazing experience when I was having problems not knowing my clamp blocks weren’t tight enough they were able to direct me in the right way of fixing my situation

    I have not had a chance to use the bender I purchased yet. I have been putting it together and welding everything up. So far the bender has been very easy to put together and is made of even better materials than anticipated. Rogue has also been great at communicating (a part was backordered) and they sent a different part so I wouldn’t be delayed in assembling or using the bender and let me know before the bender even arrived. Very pleased so far.

    As a small fan shop the quality and performance of my Rogue Fab M600 bender is exactly what we need. We’ve put it through it’s paces making rock sliders and suspension components for the off road industry and the bender never fails to deliver. If you’re thinking about a product from Rogue Fab, do yourself a favor and buy it!!

    Great products! With the support and knowledge to match. I have owned a M600 and Versa Notcher for several years now and both have operated flawlessly. It has bent everything I have put thru it. Its portable, air assist ram, multiple die sizes, easy changes, produces complex bends, and most important, Its affordable! Its great for the novice all the way to the advanced fabricator.

    Absolutely love this bender, had it for about a year now. Very easy to use for a “dumb welder” like me. I haven’t successfully figured out bend tech yet but did figure out how to do this extremely tight offset of 0.5D ! Needed the tight offset for a project and I was going to do a welded to and some cutting to make it happen. Thanks to this bender it looks super professional and saved me a bunch or time to boot!

    I purchased the M600 weld together kit. Kit was very easy to put together and only took me 2 hours to complete. I bought this bender to build bunpers, sliders, and cages for my SxS. The cost of this bender was cheaper then buying all of the add ons already built. I figured since I am a welder/fabricator that I could purchase this and build everything I wanted and more! It has been great, I love it!

    This bender has seriously upped my fabrication. It is very accurate and the ability to set the rotation for multiple bends with the clamp locks is incredibly brilliant. Being a vertical bender i use a digital gauge finder and all of my bends come out absolutely perfect! Thank you guys so much for this amazing machine. Kyle

    Ive been using my bender for over 4 years now and it has never let me down. I originally purchased it to build some cages for friends and have continued to do so as a way to being in side money really wish i would have got the car but thats not a deterrent. Add in the upgraded pressure dies and this machine is so much more effective and enjoyable to use.

    My boss bought the diy bender kit, and well had me put it together lol the set up was a breeze, every piece fit perfectly within each other and the bare metal welded like a dream! All in all with the price of this bender it’s the best bang for the buck out there! After I got it all together I of course had to plat with it a bit and it hangs well with the other top dollar benders!

    Sweeet machine. I love how you can set it up for repeat bends for manufacturing. At my work i use the ercolina and it takes sooooo long to set up and the m600 takes minutes. I have learned more about bending from rogue fab videos then i have any other source and with the accessories they have, well the opportunities are endless and what a great price KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

    I have owned this tubing bender for a few years now . I work in a government aerospace fabrication shop and this thing bends just as well if not better than some of the high end tube benders I use at work , rogues customer service is the best also... We were able to figure out what I was doing wrong and correct the problem ... Buying the rogue bender is one of the best purchases I have ever made

    The most easy to set up and run tool I’ve bought. Probably the most affordable air over hydraulic bender on the market, tough as nails, and everything came easily ready to weld. Assembly was so easy and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. This thing is built tonight and built right. I needed a tubing bender and they sent me an awesome tubing bender. If you are questioning buying this, just do it and thank me later.

    An AWESOME bender! I'm still learning how to use it, but the simplicity of it is amazing. The only issues that I have with it are minor binding under tension, and the springs don't fully retract the ram. First issue would have been solved by getting the pre-welded/painted version, and the second is easy enough to do by hand.

    It was easy to put together, and I really appreciate that this "build it yourself" was even an option for a DIY guy like myself. It was remarkably sturdy once complete, I could find no fault with its construction, and the guys were super friendly when I picked it up (another great customer oriented cost savings). I also can't get over how compact it is for the power it offers.

    This is definitely an excellent bender! Assembly was simple, and the instructions well written. Bends have been accurate and well-formed (I've been bending 1.75 .120 DOM mild steel). No problems or complaints so far!

    The M600 is a great bender, I've used it to build a stock car cage, make repairs to Micro Sprint cars, and we are currently building our 6th go kart cage for the Perdue Gran Prix. This bender is durable, powerful, and versatile. I don't think I'll ever need another bender unless I go over 2" material.

    This thing is tough as nails! I bought it around Christmas 2019. I used it to fab a roll cage in my e36 rally car. Perfect repeatable bends every time. Unfortunately last week my barn caught on fire and destroyed 6 years of work on the rally car, all my tools, and my other race car. The Rogue Fab Tubing Bender is the ONLY surviving tool that I now own. If that doesn't say something about the quality, I don't know what does. This was a weld together kit, went together smoothly, worked great, and survived the biggest loss I've ever had. Thank you Rogue Fab for making such a quality tool. I look forward to purchasing more great tools from you once I rebuild my barn.

    My brother and myself purchased the 600 and replaced a jd2 with it. The space savings with the free floorspace is worth it alone. It was a little of a learning curve since we were already well practiced with the other tool. Bending vertically vs horizontally helps with work space and work flow as well. The clamping feature for your tubing is a really good for keeping your bends accurate. I would recommend this to everyone looking to get into bending.

    I borrowed a friends rogue bender and built an “f toy” on a 91 Toyota chassis. I’ve used a few different brand “horizontal” benders before, along with another brand vertical bender. The rogue is the easiest of all of them to use. I have since built a roll cage, bumper, etc all with the same bender and it works flawlessly! -jeff argo

    I flew into Troutdale in a friends Cessna Cardinal in late November and picked up a M600 weld together kit. The crew at Roguefab was super helpful planning this pickup as package size and weight were critical to fit into the airplane! It al worked out great. Thank you for going the extra mile. I’ve got my tube bender all welded up and I’ve bent up my first couple “cheaters” to aid with my first roll cage project. Weld together assembly was straightforward with the directions and ample YouTube vids. The parts fit together exceptionally well. I used some basic harbor freight magnetic 90’s and a few clamps. Looking forward to using my bender in the new year!

    Bought this bender to build my bug into a baja. Never built the baja bug but I’ve used it for multiple other projects including for making stainless cooling lines for a turbo Subaru swap into the bug. Kit welded together great and works awesome right away. I added some casters to the skids to roll it around on the floor and store it out of the way.

    I Purchased the Rogue Fab Bender as weld together kit after almost ordering a competitors brand. The ad popped up on Facebook just in the nick of time. It was almost scary. This was an unbelievably easy kit to weld together with all the accurately cut notches in the pieces. I was able to source the hydraulic cylinder at a local harbor freight that had only 2 left so I bought them both! My first project is to bend up an exoskeleton for my Tucker snow cat out of inch and a half square tubing. The bends that this machine makes are awesome. Next I’ll be ordering dies to bend various diameters of round tubing. My advice to anyone considering this tubing bender is to go for it you won’t be disappointed!

    My 21 year old son just finished his ex-o-cage on his 84 Toyota crawler, using your 600 bender with 1-3/4 die and your tubing notcher he bought from you and it looks awesome. This was the first time he ever tried to do this kind of work and your bender and notcher preformed great even for a novice. I am trying to find a way to send you pictures because I think this would be great promo for Rogue Fab. Thanks for making such a great product that really works as advertised and that even a beginner can get professional results. Thanks again. Scott and Zach Sullivan

    The M600 is extremely easy to use and very capable of anything a hobbyist is willing to throw at it, and even professional shops. I built a roll cage, tube front end, and bumpers with the one I use and the only issue I’ve ever had is remembering which side of the mark to put the block on. I recommend this bender to anyone looking to purchase one for their use.

    Used the M600 at the last company I worked for and loved it. Very clean uniform bends that don’t mark up or scar the material. The vertical operation saves floor space and allows the ability for easy mounting.

    My main purpose for the bender is to make bash bars and roll cages for grassroots drift and race cars. With this in mind, I got the standard M600 with pressure roller dies in sizes 1.5x4.5 CLR & 1.75x6 CLR. By varying the thickness of 1.75 DOM, cages can be made for a wide range of cars that will fulfill NASA and SCCA rules, with just one die!

    I bought this for my newly acquired kit aircraft business, as it was the only tubing bender I could find that could handle the thick wall 4130 I need to bend for the nose gear strut of the Thatcher aircraft. It was easy to weld up, had great instructions, the pieces fit together perfectly! The first part I bent, after accounting for springback came out perfect! I'm thrilled with it, and the price was amazing for the quality! I couldn't be happier with my purchase! In addition, the guys were super helpful on the phone with a few questions prior to purchase, and were able to accommodate my request for a non-standard size die-set and still have it delivered in about a week! Thanks guys!

    Bought the model 600 weld together kit a few months ago. I love this machine! I received in a professionally packed box. Heavy one. haha. Got it welded together in about an hour and took it to my powdercoater. Building my Rzr cage with it at the moment. Great deal for this high end of equipment.
