Economy Iron Bending Machine is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product The economy Iron Bending Machine is a good product. But I did not need to mount it to the floor. I bolted it to a heavy piece of steel angle and clamp that in a vise fixed to a solid bench. That puts everything in perfect position. I made one other change that makes it extremely easy to use. I had a helmet-mount bicycle mirror sitting around. Once stuck to the side of the angled part of the frame with double-stick foam tape, I was able to adjust it to allow me to see the alignment of grooves without moving from the back of the tool. This greatly simplifies the process and should be included in every unit sold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble All in all a good enough product for my purposes. However the 'lie' gauge is 1 degree off to the upright direction. No biggie. The knob to tighten the clamp to the back face of the unit, the thread stripped after 2 clubs were adjusted. Ended up fitting a 3/8" nut and washer.

does this machine come with a putter block for bending putters? Is it possible to substitute bending bars for the one that comes with it?

No this bending machine is not designed to bend putters. For questions you have regarding substituting bend bars it would be best to contact Customer Service. You can contact them at golfworks@golfworks.com or by calling 1-800-848-8358.

T Wishon says the gauges on all bending machines should only be used to determine distance of bend, and that the only accurate measurements is with a stand alone loft/lie gauge. ?So one only needs basic club clamp and a good gauge, would you agree?

Asked by: Jim P
Yes I would agree. Knowing that Tom worked for The GolfWorks years ago it is quite likely he learned that from Ralph who as always taught this method of measuring. Loft and Lie bending machines read the lie angle off the scoring lines and if the scoring lines are not parallel to the center of the sole the lie angle readings will not be correct from a specification stand point. The gauges on a loft and lie machine are there to read the changes. I have personally used the bending machine as just a clamp for years. In fact I own an old Kenneth Smith bending machine that has no gauges. It is just a clamp to hold the club.

Can you mount this unit to the Heavy Duty Multi Position Bending Machine Stand? Thank you.

Asked by: JB16
As it is designed it will not mount to the Heavy Duty Stand. However we can drill holes in the stand to match up to the Economy Iron Bending Machine so that it can be mounted. You would be best to contact Customer Service at 1-800-848-8358 and they would be able to help you with this order.

What are the differences between this model and the more expensive ones? Since this is lowest cost from golfworks, what are the drawbacks of using this model?

Asked by: Robert88
Basically, it is not as heavy duty and requires mounting on a bench. If you only do occasional bending it is a good solid unit. If you bend a good volume of clubs, a heavier duty model would probably work best.
