Bill, I see a bender in your future! I have been wanting to buy one too, want to share the cost??? Can always sell it after we are done. LMK what you think.

Got a pipe bender. You are welcome to use it if pipe works for your plans rather than tubing. It would be tempting to try to have a tubing die made for it, frankly. 1.5" and 2", that would take care of most needs. I don't know why HF doesn't sell them. Guess pipe works for their clientèle.

Maybe lining the next size up pipe die with some 'skin' from tubing would work? Cheep-N-Cheesy. Hey, but if it works...

I just don't bend enough tubing to justify a tubing bender and dies.

I hear you, I just don't know how well pipe will hold up to abuse from the Rubithon. If you think it is OK I would be willing to split the cost of a die maybe. I want to add to the outside protection, not a full EXO but a half maybe. Protect the fenders and top somewhat etc. Not to mention the rear sides like you did and anything else. Give me a call when you can, maybe we can figure something out.

BTW how are you and your family doing? Sharon and I gave our dogs a big hug from your family and Anna MacKay We were sad the rest of the night, she was a beautiful member of your family.

Thanks, Tom. It's tough.

As far as pipe, it is not as strong or light, but should be strong enough. I have all the pipe dies. Let me know.
