Hello zobman. Yes I have one and use it often. Like anything, most benders take a little practice. Sometimes needing to fill the tubes with wet sand to help kinking . Sometimes giving the bender a few pumps then moving the tube 4 inches bending again etc.etc. Ive used 3 different lower priced benders and they all reacted the same. Heres a few bikes I've used the harbor freight bender on. I can answer more questions if needed. Take care.

That's some awesome work, man. I especially like (what looks to be) the hydraulic drive on the black bike.
