PROBLEM SOLVING HOT ROD CHASSIS PARTS FOR OVER 40 YEARS.
A unique and inexpensive alternative to thin-wall mandrel bent frame sections. Available for 2x3, 2x4, 2x5, 2x6, 3x3 and 3x4 tubing. Laser cut from 3/16" pickled & oiled mild steel. 4' lengths of HS tube are also available in the "You May Also Like..." section below.
Designed for rear kickups, center sections, frames, etc… perfect for builders looking for a smooth bend that doesn’t require special machinery. They are shipped in four pieces as shown. Because they’re made from 3/16″ (!) steel, when you grind the weld it will match up with the corner radius on hollow structural tubing.
There are no kinks or stretching normally associated with mandrel bent rectangular tubing, especially being bent the “hard way”. Reference tabs let you clamp the pieces corner to corner while they’re welded. There are scribe lines on the top and bottom plates at 30 degrees, 45 degrees, and 60 degrees so they’re easy to cut and replicate side to side.
The frame curves all have an inside radius of 4″. Therefore the outside radius is 4″ plus the size of the “tubing” that the curve produces. Here’s a list of the outside radius for each frame curve:
3×2 vertical: 7″3×2 horizontal: 6″3×3 horizontal or vertical (both are the same curve): 7″3×4 vertical: 8″4×2 vertical: 8″4×2 horizontal: 6″5×2 vertical: 9″6×2 vertical: 10″6×2 horizontal: 6″Vertical curves are also called bent the hard way and horizontal curves are called bent the easy way.
A “horizontal” bend refers to one that is bent side-to-side, to go around the rear differential for example.A “vertical” bend refers to one that is bent up or down, to kick the frame rails over the rear axle, for example.

Every customer is different. You’re different from the next customer. That’s why they’re called 'custom'ers. There is no formula, no equation that will work with all of you. It takes a different approach to everyone to determine how best to serve anyone. Some people need videos, some people need descriptions. Some people need us to weld it together. Our approach has been, and will always be, to serve each of you where you are and to treat you the same way we would like to be treated. We officially opened the doors to Welder Series in 2005. That doesn’t sound like very long, because the product line has been percolating for over 40. Paul Horton began developing and building many of the parts we still manufacture when I wasn’t yet a twinkle in Dorothy’s eye. Thanks very much for your business and support over the years.

Note DW and Paul Horton at Welder Series absolutely rock and were quick, prompt, by far the best communication I’ve had with an online vendor in a LONG LONG TIME… (Sorry but their response time was bar none awesome). Very rarely do you find the level of dedication to a customer, communication, and a rewarding experience for both the buyer and supplier. I bought a pedal assembly a bit ago, and that experience automatically ensured that I will source Welder Series before I search for another vendor. Paul and DW have it together and will make a solution to your problem… and probably at the best price around to boot.
