Alphacool Announces Eiskoffer Hardline Tube Bending Kit

Whether you’re a professional modder or still a novice, the Alphacool Eiskoffer offers everyone a comprehensive foundation for bending HardTubes into any desired form. The set is compatible with 13mm and 16mm HardTubes. Every tool is designed for both sizes. A deburring tool and gloves are included, as well as a saw and a mitre box that can be mounted to a table with special screw clamps. A rubberised interior prevents scratches and stops the HardTubes from sliding around inside the mitre box while sawing. A comprehensive set of measuring tools is included so you can get the angles you need, including several angles in a row. The measuring kit is built to be totally flexible and can be used in just about any situation.

In order to get the perfect bend each time, a substantial palette of bending radii and angles can be attached to the bending plate. The basis for this is formed by two different sizes of bending mandrels and arc mandrels. This allows you to bend HardTubes to any classic bending radius. The bending plate has a section that can accommodate self-designed or highly specialised bends. The case contains special flex mandrels that can be positioned in nearly any way. You need a 30° angle followed by a 2cm long straight section and then another 20° angle? No problem; these flex mandrels make just about anything possible.

That’s not even getting into the real highlight: instead of just bending on a 2D plane, Alphacool has included flexible 45° and 90° mandrels in the case. These make it possible to take a bend from horizontal to vertical. The flexible angles also make it possible to bend tilted angles. That means angles don’t just have to be bent straight up, but can be rotated around 180° horizontally. The corresponding angle ruler helps to set up the angles you need.


All the tools are stored in a large case with separate compartments. Everything is organised and you get a good overview of your tools.
