The described invention is a modular system for making repeatable bends in metal tubing. The system is comprised of a base plate that contains a grid of threaded holes, a handle for manually making the bends, pulleys for forming the bends, and various accessories that assist in repeatability of form and length. Pulleys, forming wheels, and locking cams are made to a variety of tube diameters and bend radii, allowing the user of this system to configure the system to his/her individual needs. Components are bolted to the base plate at any desired location. Multiple pulleys can be used in a single setup to achieve complex, repeatable bends.
