This Tube Bender is capable of bending light precision or mechanical tube of the following diameters: 31.8mm (1¼”), 38.1mm (1½”), 44.45mm (1 ¾”) and 50.08mm (2”).
The only part shared with the No. 1 Bender is the handle.
The tube bending dies necessitate being turned on a lathe, but even a wood lathe can be employed to make the dies if preferred. The only other tools required are a scriber or craft knife, a tape measure, a setsquare, an adjustable bevel, a hacksaw or cut-off saw, a pedestal or hand drill, 8mm, 12mm, 19mm, 20mm, 24mm drill bits, a welder, and an angle grinder or file for finishing.
More than just a collection of CAD drawings, this comprehensive PDF Manual consists of the following:

The Tube Bender #2 Manual guides you through each step of the construction process using plain-written instructions and highly detailed scale drawings. The drawings show dual dimensions to suit everyone; the metric measurement is given priority and is followed with the decimal inch measurement in brackets.
The simple and clear instructions lead you not only through the construction process, but also explain how to use your bender, how to read bending plans and how to calculate material requirements and measure bends.
