NHRA/SFI Complete Tube Bender Package – Mandrel or Standard
$3,499.00 – $7,449.00
This comes with everything you need to build an accurate 25.5, 25.4, 25.3, or nearly any other drag or road race chassis you can think of! Complete welded machine with all stickers already applied, and a fully assembled notcher. Comes with bending software, and indication for bend angle and rotation of bend planes. Full color instructions and tech support included. Exact list of what you get (Standard):
- Model 600 Tubing Bender (welded and painted, with air/hydraulic cylinder installed, ready for use) with the following dies, all upgraded to pressure roller dies, and all with CNC machined spacers installed:
- 1.625 (1 5/8) x 6.00 CLR
- 1.500 (1 1/2) x 6.00 CLR
- 1.25 (1 1/4) x 6.00 CLR
- 1.00 X 4.50 CLR
- 875 (7/8) X 3.50 CLR
- .75 (3/4) X 3.50 CLR
- 6 hole saw arbors
- Hole saws for every size of die
- Cutting oil
- Tube Rotation Gage - for 3D bending
- Tube bending design software (Bend Tech PRO)
If you select HD w/double clamps, you will get an HD bender instead of standard capacity, and you will get (2) of every tube clamp (makes complex multi-bend parts way easier). If you select Mandrel (dry) &2X Clamps, you will get an HD bender instead of standard capacity, and you will get (2) of every tube clamp (makes complex multi-bend parts way easier), and you will also get our mandrel attachment, and mandrels for 1.625x.083, 1.50x.065, 1.25x.065, 1.0x.058, and 1.0x.049. This will also swap your dies for 1.625/1.25 down to 4.5” bend radius, and swap your 1.0” die down to a 3.5” radius, allowing you to make tighter bends, and thus have more control over the layout of your chassis, and more space/comfort inside the cage! If you select Mandrel (thru-lube), ELITE cart, wrap/powder, you will get an HD Powder Coated bender instead of standard capacity, with a beautiful UV protected vinyl wrap installed, and you will get (2) of every tube clamp (makes complex multi-bend parts way easier), and you will also get our mandrel attachment, 3/4" and 1/2" Mandrel rods, and mandrels for 1.625x.083, 1.50x.065, 1.25x.065, 1.0x.058, and 1.0x.049. This will also swap your dies for 1.625/1.25 down to 4.5” bend radius, and swap your 1.0” die down to a 3.5” radius, allowing you to make tighter bends, and thus have more control over the layout of your chassis, and more space/comfort inside the cage! You will also get our ELITE cart, 2 hanging die racks, the Beast rack. VersaNotcher pedestal mount, and offset bracket, turning your tooling packing into a rolling fabrication system to save you time and energy. You do NOT need CAD experience or a high performance computer to run the software. You can watch 30 minutes of youtube videos and build a complete chassis in the software in a number of hours, not days. The software will print out detailed instructions on how long to cut each piece, where to notch, how to bend them, and how much they will weigh. Each piece can be named, edited, copied, pasted, etc. Multiple tube sizes, scaling of parts or entire assemblies, no problem. The software has our machine and dies already loaded into a database. It will compensate for tube stretch, springback, and the variation between nominal bend radius and achieved bend radius (and you don't need to understand these 3 terms, just run a calibration on the software, which includes bending a 90 and measuring it with a tape measure, and it will do it all automatically). *shipping notes for LTL FREIGHT: Our shipping cost is assuming you have a commercial (non residential) address and a dock or forklift to unload. Residential and lift gate fees average $65 each and are the buyer's responsibility. You may also pick up at the freight terminal for no additional cost to avoid these costs if they apply(they will load into your pickup truck). If you have ground items ordered, they may have a separate much smaller shipping charge at checkout.
Die Sizes: Dies that comes with your machine. dies are listed as “OD x CLR”, OD = outside diameter or size, and CLR = Center Line Radius, the size of the bend. For help choosing dies, click here (LINK).
Roller Dies: This package comes with pressure roller dies, which allow you to load the machine easier/faster and put bends closer together in some circumstances, and bend steel/aluminum without changing pressure dies. S bends are possible with this upgrade, we have a video showing them here: Video on YouTube (LINK, new window).

Want proof that the standard M600 (not the xHD) can bend 1.75 solid steel bar?! watch the 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;
