To me,the tool shown looks like a spitting image of a Bramley bar bender made by Bramley Enginneering of New Zealand for the last 30 years in my memory at least.
There have been many tools that apprentices and fools could manage to break but the original Bramley bender was never one of them.The Bramley benders were in the $200 - $400 range then being supplied in medium and huge models .Every fab workshop I ever worked seemed to have one and they never got broken.

Never fear, sub quality Chinese Engineering will have found a way to produce this nastier cheaper version to fail prematurely in way you all have become used to.

If you actually saw one I think you'd be surprised. The one we have is very well built,very solid--it ain't gonna break under normal use...

$99 was not a sale price but their everyday price. The thing weighs about
90#s so shipping would most likely be a deal killer.
I did see you posted the link..


Did you have a part number on the invoice/receipt or do I need to call them and say.. Looking for the chinese bender by the door for 99.00??

No part # or sku#
Call them and ask about the $99 "ornamental iron bender" on the end cap on the back of isle #10

The only reason I remember where it is in the store is because I had to ask as it had been moved from the first time I saw it in the store and the guy gave me the wrong location.

Which store did you purchase it from? They have several locations. I went to the branch in New Castle, DE, and showed the manager a picture from your original post. He said that they didn't have them at his location, and that they couldn't get one sent over from their main store. Was it the Glassboro store?

If I had known about Fazzio's years ago, I might not have left New Jersey. I would have just moved in to one of their stores.

Yup, I got in Glassboro. If you've never been there it's worth the trip. It takes about 4 hours to go through the surplus side of the place.

Who you shittin Pop, There is no valid reason to stay in NJ. Oh wait, I have a mother that turns 90 next week and she refuses to leave, I have a semi-valid reason to stay here for the time being.

They are opening a store in NC and eventually in TX.

I just got my Grizzly 2017 catalog. It has the same bender, with maybe a little better paint job. The price was $275 with $89 shipping. I spent some money on gas and tolls and bought one at Jos. Fazzio for $99 plus 8% sales tax. A very nice bender, for the money. Well worth a road trip.
