Product Overview

Designed for accurate and easy bending of hard metal tube, the RIDGID Model 606 Heavy-Duty Tube Bender produces high quality bends with much less effort when compared to conventional benders. The tubing bender easily bends materials such as stainless steel, steel and titanium to a maximum of 180 degrees. Made to keep bends in-plane and accurate, it features a simple 2-stage design that allows for bends from 90 to 180 without ever crossing handles. Users can easily lock and unlock the tube bender with a half-turn rotation of the bending handle. For improved accuracy, roll dies in the bending carriage reduce tube flattening (ovality) and the amount of force needed, while gain marks on the front ensure properly aligned bending angles. For reduced force, a vise clamp built into the bending form delivers extra stability and extra-long 16 in. handles offer increased leverage. Handles also feature cushioned grips for improved comfort and ease when forming bends. The tubing bender displays measurements in both inches and metric sizes. This pipe bender accommodates tubes with an outside diameter of a 3/8 in. and 15/16 in. bend radius.

Bends are good but the pipe often gets badly miss
I've used rigid benders for working and they generally work good but I have the standard metal ones for the rest and this model for my 1/2" copper tubing. It squeezes the copper to a point in the bend and my customers have sent it back. I need rigid benders because of the radius they give but I've had to decline 1/2" pipe jobs because of this flaw.

    RIDGID 600 3/8" Pipe Benders
    I was working with complex precision bends with 3/8" copper pipe, and the generic cheap benders were far from adequate, causing compression, or deformation through the bends. I bought these on the basis of the reputation of the brand Ridgid , what can I say, WOW, these are world's apart from the cheap unbranded products, admittedly, perhaps a little inconvenient needing a separate bender for each pipe/tube size, however, these are a precision product, and more than fit for purpose across a wide material range.

    The Ridgid 606 is pretty much the top of the line for tubing benders. I have building cars for many years and have used a wide variety of benders over the years and usually had reasonable results however while building a recent project I was using Nicopp tubing and no matter what I tried the tubing collapsed. It as suggested I try the Ridgid 606 bender so I ordered one and it worked exceptionally well. They are inexpensive but produce exceptional results, so much so I ordered another one to handle 1/2" tubing.

    This is a wonderful product as I've bent several pieces from 3/8" stainless steel tubing.

    Good for stainless, not copper
    The mandrel and wheels are far too loose fitting to work with copper tubing, the edge of the mandrel actually pinches copper. If you want a good hand tubing bender, get a Swagelok model.

      I've been using these benders on 3/8" stainless almost every day for about four months, (50-100 bends a day) and I love them. There was a bit of a learning curve when I first started using them- they're a bit unwieldy and heavy compared to cheaper designs. However, with practice, its easy to get excellent results. The handles provide a positive grip, the rollers reduce felt friction by probably 30%, and the markings give accurate, repeatable results. The only issue I've noticed is a slight propensity for corrosion, but the humidity is crazy here and everything rusts faster than it should. Overall, I love these benders and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
