Handmade tube formed and welded at GoodFabs

Tube Forming & Bending

90% of the exhaust systems fabricated by GoodFabs start with a piece of flat metal sheet rather than ready-made tube.


As inconel, titanium and 321 stainless tube is not available at short notice, or in small quantities, it is more practical to form and bend sheet metal from scratch.


We stock 304 stainless steel and aluminium tube in various diameters and wall thicknesses.

Having worked with Formula 1 design engineers for over 40 years, GoodFabs has built up a large supply of mandrel bend tooling to meet their requirements for multiple diameters, wall thicknesses and centre lines.

GoodFabs has the largest range of mandrel bend tooling for alloys outside areospace

Although most of our tube forming, bending and pressing is for our own race exhaust programmes, we do make custom made tube, bends and pressings for engine builders, motorsport teams and custom exhaust fabricators, including our competitors.

Download our tooling charts or visit our individual Tube Forming, Tube Bending and Press Forming pages for more information and photos.

Please note that all our bends are produced with a minimum clamp and are supplied untrimmed. If a specific clamp and tail length is required or you would like us to trim your bends to a specific length, please state this on your enquiry.
