The Alphacool Eiskoffer is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of tools for bending 13mm or 16mm diameter hard tubes into nearly any form ever assembled. Inside the large, elegant, and sturdy case, each tool has its own separate place. All the tools are clearly arranged and neatly organised.
The rubberised gloves ensure you always have a good grip on things, while also protecting you from splinters and dirt. The deburring tool is perfect for smoothing down hard tubes. Deburring is mandatory if you want the hard tubes to fit into their connectors properly. A long, sturdy saw and a mitre box serve to simplify cutting the hard tubes. The mitre box can be fastened to a table edge with special screw clamps, which are included. The inside of the mitre box is rubberised to prevent scratches and to keep the hard tubes from sliding around. The comprehensive set of measuring tools makes it easy to measure not just length, but also two or more angles at the same time. This tremendously simplifies the planning and execution of complicated bending sequences. 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 hard tubes to any classic bending radius. The fitting stoppers can be used to simulate the depth of an Alphacool fitting on the end of the tube. This means an exact measurement and a perfect bend are always guaranteed when using Alphacool products. Alternatively, the straight mandrel with a stylus stopper can be used if you are using other products.
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. To finish off, silicon inserts for hard tubes with 13mm and 16mm diameters are included.
