This is the type of tubing bender you need to make rollbars etc. As others have stated you can try sand but really you have a bender that is made for extremely thickwall tubing and not for exhaust tube bending.

Ya as Mark P said, that site you gave said schudele 40 minimum. Im guessing that sort of thick. I dont think your dumb or anything though, It would be sweet to have a pipe bender, but I wouldnt know what is good or bad. 10 bucks is a good deal on that.

Good for rollbars/frames, not so good for thin wall SS exhaust. I really like those benders and that's what I'll be getting sooner or later.

There you go rican now you just need to build yourself a rollbar to show off your bending/welding skills.

that thing was $10 for a reason, unless you are bending some that you want to look real shitty, those benders are worthless

You are right, for thin wall SS you need a mandrel bender.
