These tools are fantastic for making complex tubework accurately and easily! Now if you can think it, you can bend it! And if you use Bend Tech software, this is one of the outputs, which you now have a gauge for.
Angle cube with tube clamp mount- Ergonomic, compact, and rigid. This clamp-on tube clamp can be slid onto tubing up to 2.375″ OD and provides 2 surfaces 90 degrees apart to set the magnetic angle cube. The cube can read in degrees (down to .05 degrees resolution), and also in % incline and in/ft. When you have two bends in a part and they aren’t in the same plane (3D), this is how you accurately put them at 30 degrees apart. This clamp is fast to set, and clamps very well on bends if needed. Made in the USA. Ships painted.
Angle cube plate – This simple laser cut plate allows the angle cube to be placed on a standard RogueFab clamp block in either orientation (to read bend angle or tube rotation). This can be a handy backup to the analog gauge on the machine for bend angle, and it can also be used just like the clamp mount in this kit to indicate tube rotation. Aluminum clamp block sold separately. Made in the USA. Ships as raw steel.
Angle cube – backlit LCD screen, resolution of 0.05 degrees. Magnetic base. Can be set to zero at any angle. Reads angle from zero to 90 degrees and then starts over again at zero (so a 110 degree bend will read 20… it’s quick to get used to). Imported. runs on 2 AAA batteries, sold separately.
Why would I want this: If you make or plan to make 3D parts. Or if you want to be able to accurately produce parts from Bend Tech EZ3D or PRO or SE software.
Why wouldn’t I want this: If you make simple 2D parts from bent tubing, these tools won’t be of much use to you.
