I need a one inch die for a desert tool bender . Everywhere I've went , they are out of them . I will pay to rent yours for a week , or I will buy it if you have one to sell . I need it ASAP as we are hanging the new glass on the race truck starting Sunday 3/23 so it will be ready for the 4/05 MDR race . Thanks for any help .

harbor freight sells a tubing bender thats a floor model that bends 1 " like a champ. it cheap like $75 and if you make a longer handle it will bend .095 and even .120 if you give her hell. i used one forever and even after i got a 1" die i still use the hf bender for 1" because its easier and faster.

The die that I need is for a desert tool bender . Sorry , but the harbor freight one won't work . Tims bender is not a desert tool model , so his won't work either .

I will pay double whatever Dan will pay you NOT to rent him the bender :)

Dan/Austin,

If the JD2 dies will work with that bender, pm me and we can figure something out.

Did you all get the die problem fiqured out? If not I could bring you my hydro set up, if you need to for nothing more than a few cocktails.

like always, im broke at the worst times. ive been spending literally all my money and time to putting it together, and im just now getting somewhere. Im doing this alone (i have a helper on the weekend, but its just a buddy of mine, not a skilled fabricator like fish :p), and on a very tight budget. ill probably register tomorrow. and like usual for me, i just wing it. if its possible for me to make it, i will.

Dan come by and use our bender. I have whatever you need. Just dont lower your Ranger in front of my shop it makes to much noise. PSSSSSSssssssssssssstttt. reeee reeee psssssssst.

If you did not know Dan drives a 98 Ranger on air bags and it is very loud. It has 8 switches and goes side to side and $h)!
