I have a Hossfeld manual machine. Not sure if the dies interchange.
I have 1 1/8" OD, 1 1/4" OD. Radius like 3.5" and 4" I think.

Just checked, yes the dies interchange with my Hossfeld #2.

I've also got the setup for edge bending flat stock, bending 1" square tube and various other stuff.

I've been planning on buying a set of 1" dies.

For 3/4" just use a conduit bender if things don't have to be real precise.

The problem with the dies is, you send a set back and forth once and you've paid for half of a new set :)

Xander,
That's going to be an exhaust shop job (or Headers by Ed ). Don't think any non-mandrel bender like the Hossfeld and copies can bend that tight of a radius in 1.75" OD tube.

And expanding is a bitch. I've built a couple of my own expanders, none have worked worth a shit so far. Another exhaust shop job.
