The RDB-050 manual tube bender was designed as an affordable
bender that has enough capacity for just about any chassis
fabrication shop. The RDB-050 is revolutionary in design,
function and capacity. The RDB-050, from Baileigh
Industrial, is extremely powerful and can bend up to 2-1/2"
OD mild steel with a wall thickness of .120" and 2" OD
Chromalloy with a wall thickness of .120".
The most unique feature of the RDB-050 is that it has three
selectable bending speeds. The proper speed for each
application depends on the material type, OD and wall
thickness. Speed one (4 degrees per pull) has the most
torque and would be used for bending 2" OD Chromalloy or 2-
1/2" OD mild steel. Speed two produces 8 degrees (for
intermediate materials), while speed three produces 12
degrees (for lighter gauge materials) with each pull. Also,
the RDB-050 can bend in one shot without having to stop and
reset the machine
The RDB-050 manual tube bender has no disassembly or
assembly needed to produce a bend. Simply walk up to the
RDB-050 and put your tubing into the hook arm insert and
begin bending. When the bend is complete, return the machine
to the home position and pull your bend out, or position it
for the next bend. The RDB-050 tube bender can bend up to
200 degrees and an anti spring back mechanism holds each
bend in place as the operator ratchets forward.
All pivot points on the RDB-050 utilize aluminum bronze
bushings and thrust washers, for long life. The hook arm has
quick release inserts to assist when changing over the
machine to a different size of tubing. A complete changeover
should take no more than one minute.
The RDB-050 comes complete with the stand, bend handle and
degree dial. Just add tooling and you are ready to bend
