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. 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).
Exact list of what you get (Standard):
- Model 601 (or 605 if chosen) Metal Tubing Bender (welded and powder coated, with air/hydraulic cylinder installed, ready for use) with the following dies, all upgraded to pressure roller dies, all with tube clamps laser engraved with our degree rotation option for making 3D parts, and all with CNC machined spacers:
- 1.625 (1 5/8) x 6.00 CLR (setup with Thin Wall Roller upgrade)
- 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
- VersaNotcher Tube Notcher
- 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 M605 w/double clamps, you will get an 605 bender instead of standard capacity 601, 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 605 bender instead of standard capacity 601, 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 605 Powder Coated bender instead of standard capacity 601, 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, spring back, 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.
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:

Have you ever seen a tubing bender bend 2.00″ Solid steel bar at room temperature? Now you can! Our M625 is up to the task (for testing purposes). Our M605 can bend up to 1.5″ Solid bar, so it is still built way tougher than needed (the M605 is the machine in our NHRA pacakge).
