Easy and Powerful Bender for 3, 4and 6 pt. Rule

We have engineered this new E-Z line of tools with a patent-pending toggle-joint mechanism in the handle so it delivers the same results as your traditional tools but requires only one-fourth the elbow grease.The new toggle design gives you far greater working force for your effort. Our new E-Z handles also have ergonomic, variable hand positioning that accommodates any working height and angle you personally find comfortable and convenient.

Also standard on the E-Z Heavy Duty Bender are the vise-action die holders and locking dovetail back post previously only offered on the Modified Bender Bendall and the Modified Heavy Duty Bender. The vise action die holders allow tightening of loose fitting dies for precise alignment of new or worn bending dies. An Allen wrench is used to close the jaws. The locking dovetail backpost is designed to deliver consistent bending even after years of use.

The Helmold E-Z Heavy Duty Bender has a standard 1¹⁄₄” high post that can accommodate optional mandrel sets designed for thicker rule. The front die holder is recessed, keyed and bolted to eliminate springing and turning; and the rear die holder slides out to hold any required mandrel.Optional 1¹⁄₂” and 2” high posts are also available for this bender.

In order to use mandrels with this machine,a mandrel adapter and dovetail extension are needed. If the mandrels are under 5/8” diameter, a rear support post and link will also be required. Mandrel accessories can be obtained for the E-Z Heavy Duty Bender in heights of1¹⁄₄”, 1¹⁄₂” and 2” high. Shipping weight for this bender is 69 lbs.

Powerful Bender for 3 and 4 pt. Rule

The Helmold Heavy Duty Bender, while similar in design and operation to our Standard Bender, is a more powerful model for thicker rule – 3 pt., 4 pt. and higher. Like the Standard Bender it has an adjustable stop that can be set in an instant, limiting movement of the dies and enabling the user to readily make duplicate symmetrical bends. An adjustable side gauge, identical to the one found on the Standard Bender, is also included with this machine. It can be used on either side of the bender for locating the position of rule relative to the dies.

The Universal Die Room Bender for 2 and 3 pt. Rule

The Helmold Standard Bender is practically in universal use wherever steel rule dies are made. It uses interchangeable male and female dies to form rule into the desired shapes without disturbing bends previously made. The Helmold Standard Bender is equipped with an adjustable stop that can be set in an instant, limiting movement of the dies and enabling the user to readily make duplicate symmetrical bends. An adjustable gauge is

also included that can be used on either side of the bender for locating the position of rule relative to the dies.

This is an excellent starter tool for making simple bends; and a great second machine for simple set bending operations. If your die room does “production set bending” where two machines are needed to make a shape, this machine is a good choice to back up a Bender Bendall.

The Standard Bender is designed for use with rule up to 1” in height. Shipping weight is 65 lbs.
