Bending Stock?


Recommended Posts

So, recently I just moved out into the middle of nowhere, farm area. Not much for miles and miles, where is a good place to order lots of different bending stock? I need warmup stock, lots of g2 bolts or round/squares, g5s..etc etc? Any leads?

i think that mudhut guy may bend a bit of steel. if you are lucky, you will find a local metal shop who sells roundstock and square stock steel. hot rolled and cold rolled in 3/16 to 5/8 could keep you busy for a while for under $25. that is what i have done. i get 4 foot pieces and cut it to length. in the end, this is less expensive but not as convenient as ordering from the bending stock guys.

Thanks, I miss FBBC & the contact with all you guys, but just too much on my plate with shows now. Jerry (owner now) was my welder for the last 7 years I owned FBBC, so nobody knows the products better outside me. He still carries everything I did, and still does the custom stuff. I was talking to him this am, he got a request for a Conan's wheel that'll hold two motorcycles.
