Economy Iron Bending Machine is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! Purchased after thinking something was of in my irons. I had to build a stand which was easy, then checked the L & L. 2 clubs were over 4 degrees off. Great for the tinkerer.

How does this machine compact to Golfsmith's precision L/L machine?

Asked by: John C
Since Golfsmith is no longer in business I am looking in one of their older catalogs at a Bending Machine that they referred to as the "Basic Loft & Lie Bending Machine" that sold in 2008 for $299.99. Our GW0053 is comparable to that machine. What they called the Ultimate Loft & Lie Bending Machine would compare to our MA2017. http://www.golfworks.com/maltby-iron-hybrid-bending-machine/p/MA2017/

My instruction load is increasing, as such I am looking to be able to do minor club fitting. I am looking at the Value line machine, versus the Economy. Don't expect fitting to become extremely large. Suggestions? I'm with the Trade program.

Asked by: Mike1126
If your budget allows for it I would go with this Economy Iron Bending Machine (GW0053). It will allow you to read the changes when you are adjusting loft and lie. The Value Line Machine (VAM) does not take any readings so you will not know how much you have adjusted the club. With the Value Line you would also need a golf club gauge like the Value Line Golf Club Gauge (HGCG) to be able to check and read the loft and lie measurements.

Does the bending bar for this machine leave dents in the forged irons? If so, what bending bar do you recommend?

Asked by: RZR1
This machine comes with The GW1036 Short Hosel Bending Bar and there is a chance it will leave marks on the hosel of forged irons. I would suggest the GW1077 Long Hosel Bending bar. It works well with most traditional length hosels. You always want the bending bar to cover as much of the length of the hosel as possible to more evenly distribute the bending pressure. You could also use the Brass Hosel Protectors to help protect the hosels when making adjustments. Keep in mind that bending marks are always a possibility. It's just a nature of the beast type of thing. http://www.golfworks.com/brass-hosel-protectors-pair/p/BHP/ http://www.golfworks.com/heavy-duty-long-hosel-bending-bar/p/GW1077/

Sir, is this machine/tool able to bend iron clubs that are not made of forged irons.?

Asked by: AJ the DJ
Yes you can bend most cast stainless steel irons in this machine. There are always some irons that are just not adjustable. We have this list on our web site that you can reference. http://www.golfworks.com/images/art/Iron%20Models%20Not%20Rec.pdf

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.
