A hand bender is a machine used to bend wire, solid stock, and tubing. The bender comes with multiple dyes for different types of bends.
*Currently the bender stand is not bolted to the floor, so you can really only bend light materials like 1/8" thick aluminum. If you want to bend thicker material, you will need help from someone to hold the table. In the future we will be bolting the bender to a sturdier spot.

Here is an example of this piece of equipment being used.
