Default ordered one of these yesterday evening

Well, I found one. with round tube dies from 3/8 to 1" not by Baileigh but looks identical in MFG. to this one from Baileigh

would have liked to have the square dies like the one from Baileigh, but for 170 bucks cheaper. I'm not gonna complain any. should arrive by the 7th.
will post pics when it gets here.
seen the same one I ordered on BG for 400... almost hit the buy button on the Baileigh but decided to look around once more
So pays to shop around these days

Here is the one I ordered. like I said it's not the Baileigh, but sure looks like its made the same.
I can't pull a link to this as the App don't offer a link but I think you can get a good idea of how well its made. I'm thinking I will have the paint removed off the dies, and have them polished.
I think it will be much better overall for bending.

Well, it came in. and I must say I am bit impressed with it. It is made much heavier than I expected no cast aluminum dies all steel dies a bit heavy so should do the job without issues. was worth the wait. and already in-country warehouse so arrived two weeks early.

Your original post mentions 'tube', but the sticker on the bender stares 'pipe'.

Have you checked it yet with any of the tubing you plan to use with it?

It's for tubing. you know how the Chinese list things. their descriptions. Are, well a bit something to wonder about. but I'm pretty sure it's for tubing.

What sort of lube should be used when bending tubing?
I noticed in the Baileigh site they mentioned theirs comes maybe with die lube or lube for the die... is it a specialty lube or not totally necessary.
