Description

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, “tube rotation between bends” is one of the outputs, which you now have a gauge for! The cube can read in degrees (down to .05 degrees resolution), and also in % incline and inches/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.

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. Includes small soft case to protect it when not in use.

Tube Mount – These clamps are ergonomic, compact, and rigid. This slip-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.  This clamp is fast to set, and clamps very well on bends if needed. Made in the USA here at our shop! Ships powder coated.

Top 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 (see our tube bender dies area ). Made in the USA. Ships powder coated.

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. Or if you want an easy reliable way to make sure all your bends are in the same plane.

Why wouldn’t I want this: If you only make simple 2D parts from bent tubing, and you don’t care how close to being in-plane all the bends are, these tools won’t be of much use to you.

We use our angle cubes in the shop ALL THE TIME!

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? We use the angle cube (not on tubing) in this one. Watch the video:

    Super handy little tool. If you need to keep bends or notches on the same plane that’s little thing makes it easy!

    It's pure genius. This makes bending 3D parts much easier. It is a must have! Plus you can clamp it on other things you build and get more use out of your angle cube.

    These little things have been great. I use them all the time. Even use them for building and remodeling. They've been awesome!

    Just got these and haven’t used them yet but man am I impressed with the features that are packed into these! The different read outs will be great for many other projects outside of fab work and the quality of the readout is outstanding. Couldn’t be happier and can not wait to get to use these on a bender! By the way you’ll see in the picture one of the ways I’ll be using these.

    I've only bent a few tubes with my new M600 bender but the tube clamp makes using the angle cube and keeping tube to tube bends oriented easily; a MUST have tool when putting more than one bend in a tube! Super easy to use and very well made.

    These are just plain convenient to have. The tube clamp goes on and off quickly and the magnetic angle finders stay stuck on. The plate for the clamp block is a good reference to check rotation or level on your bender.

    Great quality piece that holds firmly on the tube. I don't have to worry about bumping this one out of place.

    Bought these a ways in to my project. Really wish I had gotten them when first bought my bender as they really helped me make consistent bends. This is must have product, that is inexpensive and easy to use!

    These are a must for any bending work . quick and easy set up make this my go to digital gauge

    The accuracy and repeatability you can achieve with these is amazing! Quick and easy to use,a must have for all benders.

    A must for doing rotational bends accurately and consistently.. And with the available flat mounting plate, you can use on the end of pipe as a digital angle/degree finder.

    Unlike all other benders, the rogue makes it possible to to actually use a digital gauge to watch your bends and make them accurately down to .1°, I love these cubes. 2 of them is a must, so you can measure the bend and rotation at the same time when making tubes. Dont pass these up!
