This great bundle takes the baseline MC732 XL5+ Power Bender and adds even more capability to make this not only a universal metal bender but an indispensable and versatile bit of fabrication equipment and/or comprehensive wrought iron workers machine.
As well as being a metal bending tool, a guillotine for metal, a bar roller, a hole punch and a cold riveting tool, the extra options provide a sturdy floor mount pedestal, attachments for embossing and end forging of bars, an edge bender to bend steel on edge, a micro bender for tight and intricate bends. Last but not least there is an option pack for rolling round tube and rod. For the money, you will be hard pressed to find a piece of fabrication equipment that is so versatile.
Dimensions: 110mm W x 430mm D x 360mm H x 720mm handle length

Operations and Features
Packs a mean punch with a reversible punch block capable of 5mm and 6mm dia holes in 5mm/6mm flat bar respectively. Now includes for 2017 the 3mm and 4mm punch block and pins.
Max 5 Dia in 5 Thick material or 6 Dia in 6 Thick material
Max 4 Dia in 4 Thick material or 3 Dia in 3 Thick material
Cuts like a hot knife through butter for all of these sizes. Note the separate blade aperture for cutting round and square bar.
Max 25 x 8 to 40 x 6 Flat
Max 10 Square
Max 12 Dia Round
Produces strong authentic looking ornamental joints using cold rivets. A useful alternative to welding when availability of welding equipment or power is an issue.
Max will work with 5, 6 and 3mm rivets (flat or round head)
Rolls arches, curves and rings in flat and square bars by driving steel backwards and forwards through rollers using the winding handle. (note - be aware that the knurled drive roller can leave a "knurl" pattern impression on the face of the steel bar being rolled)
Max 50 x 6 to 40 x 8 Flat
Max 16 Square
5. Bending (single Pass)
Real power bending completed in a single pull of a lever. Bends upto 60° angles in material sizes up to 12mm thick. Bends upto 90° angles in material beyond 12mm and upto 16mm thick.
Max 25 x 10 to 40 x 8 Flat
Max 16 Square
Max 16 Dia Round
5+ Bending (Progressive)
An extra feature for gradual bending of even bigger sections into curves. Carried out by applying large bending power at increments along the length of a bar. Handles a wide variety of sections including angle, T-section, square tube, square bar and channel, and even handrail profile.
Max 50 x 10 to 40 x 8 Flat
Max 20 Square
Max 16 Square (if bent diagonally)
Max 20 Dia Round
Max 30 x 30 x 1.5 (wall thickness) to 25 x 25 x 2 (wall thickness) Square Tube
Max 30 x 30 x 3 (thick) to 25 x 25 x 6 (thick) Angle
Max 30 x 30 x 3 (thick) to 25 x 25 x 5 thick T-section
Max 40 x 5 to 25 x 10 Flat bar on edge
Option 1 - Pedestal
A strong and stable platform that bolts to a solid floor for optimum use of the tool compared to bench mounting. Allows all round accessibility. Supplied with two hooks on bins to keep essential components close at hand.
Option 2a - Embossing
Embossing provides a patterned decorative edge to your steel bars and tube. This is carried out cold using a pair of forge blocks (provided) which give you the option of producing "scalloped" or "nicks" embossed patterns.
Max 25 Square (nick pattern only on diagonal corners)
Max 25 x 25 x 1.5 (wall thickness) Square Tube (scallop pattern only)
Max 25 x 25 x 1.5 (wall thickness) Square Tube (nick pattern only on diagonal corners)
Max 70 x 5 Flat Bar on edge (nick pattern) or 70 x 3 (scallop pattern)
Option 2b - End Forging
Using the forge blocks provided in this kit you can produce decorative crimped fish tailed ends to your flat, square and roundbars. However, this function requires the ends of the bars to be preheated and tapered. A large and small crimp pattern is provided for larger and smaller bars.
Small Crimp Pattern
Max 12 Square and Square Diagonally
Max 12 Dia Round
Max 25 wide Flat Bar on edge
Large Crimp Pattern
Max 16 Square and Square Diagonally
Max 16 Dia Round
Max 40 wide Flat Bar on edge
Option 3 - Edge Bending
This simple but effective special bending pillar allows gradual and sharp angles in flat bar to be bent on edge. This is such a useful feature when making frames and components out of flat bar.
Max 25 x 3 up to 25 x 5 Flat Bar on Edge
Option 4 - Tube / Rod Rolling
This add-on kit provides five sets of rollers and a special winding handle to allow you to roll arcs, curves and rollers in round tube and rod. The five sets enable you to work with tube and rod covering the following sizes: 13mm, 16mm, 20mm, 22mm and an impressive 25mm.
Round Rod (solid)
Min 10 Dia up to Max 20 Dia
Min 12 Dia (any wall thickness) up to Max 25 Dia (wall thickness 1.6)
