    Tube bender

    Ok apparently I posted this in the wrong place. I see that Yellow Jacket responds here. Mine and my partners tube bender will not bend 3/4 and 7/8 without kinking. I have used lubricants a still kinks. Other guys who have slightly newer benders, same brand have no problems. Did I get a reject? Was there a bad batch, recall or something that I missed? What is the solution to this problem? 7/8 and 3/4 are my most used mandrels. For what it's worth, I tried other mandrels on my tool and they worked fine. The trouble is definitely the mandrels.

    Sounds like you may have a bad set of mandrels. Can you send them to us for inspection and/or replacement? Please call our customer service department at 800-769-8370 and they'll help with the details.

    LOL at least it is off the subject matter of the OPs thread.. Maybe you should create a thread promoting the URL and talking points there..
