streetcore Posted September 28, 2017 Share Posted September 28, 2017 Hi everyone, I'm just getting started in metal work and blacksmithing, and I'm thinking about buying a metal bender. There are two benders available locally (see links and attached pics), and I'm not sure which would be the best choice. The floor mount model is $115 cheaper and appears to be more versatile, but the benchmount model appears to accept larger stock and has an adjustable work stop and angle stop for repetitive bends. Right now I'd like to make some shelf brackets and some table legs, and don't think I would exceed the capacity of the floor mount bender, but I really don't know what I'll get into in the future. Is one of these benders a better choice than the other? Thanks very much. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
