Hello all, instead of paying a shop to make my exhaust piping, I would like to do it at home. I have seen on ebay this tube bender, but before ordering I want to be sure it will work to bend 2.5" stainless pipes??



1" to 3" Bench Die Bender Pipe Square Rod Bender | eBay



and



Large Tail Pipe Expander Automotive Exhaust Muffler Expander 2 1 8" to 3 1 2" | eBay



Anyone already tried??



Thanks for reply

To get good bends on exhaust tubing your going to need a mandrel bender to prevent crushing the sides. Problem is mandrel bends are not cheap by and shape or form. If I were you I would but some pre bent tubes and cut those to length. They sell packs of pre bent tubes at summit racing. Or jegs. Just select a size tubing and they send you what you need

Your not going to be able to make sharp bends like a mandrel bender but with some trial and error and pre-planning it will do the job.
