ok i know theirs a ton of guys here all with their own way they like to bend tube! me personally i start with paper pencil protractor and a few measurements. but today i got to thinking i must be doing this the hard way! what are your secretes? any helpful hints?? anyone got a program i can plug lengths bends needed degrees something that would keep me from making a pretsel out of a 20 foot of tubing?

what im trying to do is bend up my engine cage i want a three bend engine cage a 30 in the middle and each corner should be 75.... but my problem is the mounts are 32inches wide. where do i mark my bends so i dont end up at 35 or 30? i know trial and error work but thats getting expensive!

so lets make everyones life easier.

It's an art I haven't figured out yet. This should be a good discussion if anyone has some insight.

wow i thought this would help everyone! guess noone has a opinion or thought and none of you guys have tube benders right?

well on topic i best idea i have had lately is to draw with chalk the area your bends need to fit between on a flat level piece of concrete...... that seems like it would make it eaiser to measure between bends...

I don't have a bender, but have seen this software on a few sites.
bend-tech.com/
Sounds like that is what you are looking for.
