View Full Version : SF Valley mandrel bends

12-12-2012, 5:35 PM
Anyone know of a place in the SF Valley that sells mandrel bends for a price that isn't a total ripoff? Been calling around and people seem to want $30+ for a 1 3/4" OD piece of mandrel bent 180 degree mild steel. Seems like I should be able to find these parts at a reasonable price somewhere in L.A. without having to resort to ordering online.

Have you called any local muffler shops?

$30 is a little high, but not ridiculous...

I've called pretty much every local muffler shop and half of them don't even know what mandrel bends are. The others either don't have the size I need, or want $30-40 for a single U bend. 7th Phase Inc looks like they've got great stuff at the right price, too bad they're 90 miles away.

Just got back from Morse Muffler (http://www.yelp.com/biz/morse-muffler-burbank) in Burbank and they had everything I needed in stock. Charged me $42 for the 3 U bends I needed for my exhaust. At $14 a piece that's a great deal even compared to online pricing, and I get to support a local business.
