Tubela Model 3 - Great British made - 2 Year Warranty.

Manual Tube Bender

Why the Tubela Model 3? We have been supplying the American made JD2 Model 3 bender for over 17 years. We are the UK's original importer of this great, cost-effective tube bending machine. And now we make our own! We offer quick supply and shipping times with all of our tube & pipe benders.
The Tubela Model 3 tubebending machine has been improved. High-grade S355 steel and a thick powder coat help keep the Model 3 Tube Bender machine in pristine condition for longer, no matter how often it is used. All JD2 Model 3 Tooling is compatible with Tubela's Model 3 Tube Bender.
Now available as an option with an Anti-Spring Back Bar, helping you bend by not releasing the pressure in the bender whilst making life easier for you as there is no slack to take up with each bending stroke. 

Ratchet Tube Bending

The Model 3 Tube Bender is suitable for both hobbyists and the professional fabricator, who require a dependable, accurate and affordable tube bender. The Tubela Model 3 Tube Bender is easy to operate, using a ratchet mechanism. This heavy-duty pipe bending machine makes light work of even the thickest tube and pipe.
This manual bender is the number 1 selling Hand Ratchet tube bender for racecar & bike fabricators. Tubela has been supplying this machine in the UK to bike, Trike, Kart, racecar and roll cage builders since 2005.
The Model 3 tube bender is effective and durable, yet remains affordable. The manual tubing bender parts are all CNC constructed, to ensure durability and protect against breakage.

Manual Pipe bender

As this DIY tubing bender uses a ratchet system, it is straightforward to operate. Although a manual tubing bender, this machine is still capable of bending larger tubing systems, without need for assistance. This machine is also very accurate. The degree indicator ensures you can bend tubing to an exact degree and bend radius, with clear readability of the bend.
The machine comes complete with all parts and is easily assembled for your convenience. So all you will need is your chosen Former and Guide Set Tooling and then you are ready to bend tubes straight out of the box. The Model 3 tube bender doesn't include a Stand, (You can buy a Stand here) so a sturdy bench or mount is required. A plate is supplied with the bender which simply needs to be bolted or welded on to any sturdy metal surface, such as a welding table, frame jig, workbench or pedestal.
