Bending Iron parts

Postby Andrew McSpadden » Tue Oct 17, 2017 12:33 pm

I need a new bending iron "pipe" for my Ibex (al la StewMac/LMI) bending iron. Mine got dented when I moved. SM and LMI don't have parts and I cant find the manufacturer online.

Any suggestions?

If the dent can't be pounded out I'd look for a section of sailboat mast extrusion. Maybe get a 2" piece of black iron pipe and heat it red and pound it into an oval shape? Aluminum extrusions come in thousands of shapes so look around on eBay and see what you can come up with.

Mine I made from a section of 3" diameter truck exhaust pipe.

I found a support post under my house that had been replaced. 3".
Cut off a 10" section
