3" tubing bend
 
Hi , I have to bend one piece of 3" .125 tube one time. No way to justify a new bender and dies for that. I want to get a 90 with about a 18" radius. Any ideas? Help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. What is this piece's intended use? It depends on that.

I have a motorcycle frame to build and this will be the backbone of it, so, it needs to be tidy.

Are you building a bike for Sasquatch! That is some L A R G E tube.
Seriously though, what kind of bike.

As for suggestions for how to bend it, contact a local fab shop with a large capacity roll bender. They should be able to get ya taken care of.

Yeah but noone will have a draw type bender with an 18" radius die so you'll be trying to find someone with a roll bender... or use a smaller tube, or have it be straight.

You could also make 45 degree bend, push the tube a few inches and then make another 45 degree bend if the radius was smaller than requested. Not the same but may work.

this is one of our powder coating clients, I'm pretty sure he can do it with no problems

Jimmy.
I like your enthusiasm but...
Did you even look at the date of that thread? 2011...
Stop and think, decide if you really need to post into a thread where the last post is years old!

Have a great day!

Personally, I think Jimmy is a bot. He indicated in a different thread he was from Canada but his location [upper right corner of his posts ] is pretty specific, and it's not Canada.
