I ended up getting it on my trailer using very sketchy methods. It included single stacking blocks on top of pine rounds and then using a high lift to push it on to the trailer.

Well I think I found the bender for me. I’ll have to build a base, because I’m not spending that much money for 30” of square tube with flat stock welded to the ends...

I’ll buy the die/mandrel next month. I was thinkin I’d go with a 5.5” on center, 180 deg die set.

About 50% more than last year.
Shit only 50% more. how about almost double for me. If I buy 5 sticks of each size, 1.25 1.5 1.75 2" all .120 wall AND all at once I get following prices per foot, but quote only good for 3 days as well so don't bother price shopping unless ready to pull the trigger same day. Lol.

1.25 = 2.67
1.5 = 3.21
1.75= 3.47
2= 3.50

I used to pay under $2 a ft for 2" DOM. Luckily I bought well over $1000 worth last time so I have some still in stock for my personal truck i'm building right now. Hell even 1" x .120 HREW i got quoted $2.20 a ft for it right now. I used to pay like $0.40 a ft for that.

Also these are my shop prices and I buy easily $500-1000 a month with them too. Steel prices going nuts right now, not as bad as lumber but still.

Well it sounds like my typical luck... Any time I’m about to do something, it will cost me significantly more than average.

Are those your current prices? I don’t think I’ve ever paid under $3.50 a foot for 1.75.

Shit is bank now. Especially if you only want a little bit.

Buy it all at once if you can.

I swear IMS in Clairemont quoted Justin like $50 for 10ft of 1.75 x .120 the other day.
