The New AG Bender is here!

AG Bender 7: New Features

Since the inception of the AG Bender we have constantly been making improvements based on your feedback. Recently, we made significant modifications that we’re extremely excited about and we hope that you will be too!

First off, we’ve made some changes to the website! You can now shop for Benders here. We are offering a $150 discount for your first Bender purchase! Just use the discount code “first_agb” at checkout.

Now let’s talk about the machine. We’ve made the AG Bender compatible with more wire mesh types, including PVC coated ones by these manufacturers:

Nils doing friction testing

We did a lot of friction testing with different materials to make the Bender easier to use. As a result, we now offer either Delrin™ or Teflon™ rods, depending on your choice of mesh.
These parts can be easily swapped by customers on site.

The Bender is able to accommodate mesh spools with various inner and outer diameters.

The other changes we are excited about

A “wave plate” detent system on the machine perfectly aligns the mesh when changing the width of the Bender.

And finally, we increased the length of the strut channel, making the Bender easier to anchor.

As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Field Tester Program

Become a Prototype Tester!

Here at Slick Tools, we strive to provide you with high quality tools that make installing Solar easier. Putting our tools into the field to get tested by the people who will actually use them has been a huge part of our product development. The more feedback we can get, the better.

That’s why we started our Field Testing Program.

This is a great opportunity for you to test the latest and greatest tools on the market, and for us to get invaluable feedback on our designs!

Here’s how it works:

  • Fill out the Field Tester Signup Form here
  • If one of our prototypes aligns with your needs, we’ll send you a unit to test
  • We’ll periodically ask you to fill out a short survey so we can improve our products.
