Default Re: Tools- HF tubing roller- anyone used one?

I have the HF version and really don't recommend it. If you try to roll a tight radius the two ends start to twist away from each other. If you try to put a radius bend in a certain spot in the tube and leave straights on either end, you can end up with distortion between the straights and rolled area. Sometimes I get decent results, sometimes I don't. Tubing bends need to be flat and distortion free and that can be a challenge with the HF tubing roller. I have no experience with the Eastwood product but it's price may be an indication of a high quality tool.
