Yesterday morning I went to a liquidation sale at a local machine shop that was going out of business and I was able to purchase a Northern Tools pipe bender for 25 bucks. The machine is almost brand new, has a 12 ton hydraulic cylinder and lists for 180 bucks at Northern so the price was a steal. I have been wanting to purchase one of these benders, its the last one on my list of bending machines that I use for making sign hangers and an assortment of other projects.
I already own a tubing roller, flat bar roller and a whole set of scroll bending tools so now I can bend pipe up to 2" in diameter.
Now that I am retired I hope to be able to attend more auctions and commercial liquidation sales. I would like to finally get the chance to find some of these great deals that I see so often here
