Quick Skills: Tube Forming

(1) 3hr class to teach you the basics of tube bending and rolling.

A revised version of our tube bending class, shortened to one night to fit your busy lifestyle. In this class, we’ll cover tube bending, tube rolling, and how to notch tube. Whether you want to make furniture, sculpture, or a rack for your offroading rig, tube bending can save a ton of time over cutting and welding every joint. Plus it looks cool.

Tubing Bender: Bends tube at a specific angle (like 90° or 180°)
