B-List Mandrel Bends
In the course of mandrel bending, and being a world-class supplier of performance header and exhaust components, sometimes sub-standard components are created that are just too good to throw away. These do not meet our standard for complete parts, whether it be roundness, true leg lengths, wrinkle-free , or a true radius, but that doesn't make these parts worthless. Any good fabricator will be able to see the value in a bend, even if only a portion of the bend is still usable.
These bends are also great for beginning fabricators who are looking to build their first set of headers- but don't have the budget for perfect parts. These b-list mandrel bends give them the option of having USA made, ASTM/ASME certified stainless material to weld and work with, and allow for plenty of "fudge-factor" throughout the build process as inadvertent cuts are sure to be made. This will raise confidence in weld skill and cutting experience, without breaking the bank.
Because these bends are listed as blemished/non-standard/ B-List components, they are sold as-is, without any warranty or return policy. We understand that some bends are going to be better than others, there are no guarantees as to the quality of each part. The pictures listed are merely samples of what may be in each box.
