"From the moment I first saw the TubeShark bender I knew it would be a welcome addition to my shop. Space is limited so the compact size and portability convinced me right away. When my bender arrived the first thing that impressed me was the quality of the packaging. Everything arrived in exactly the same position as the day it was shipped. When it was unpacked I couldn't believe I was looking at a precision machine, it is more like a piece of fine art. The learning curve was short and in no time at all I was comfortable with the machines operation. Since I have added the TubeShark to my tool inventory my products have taken on a whole new look, the consistency of my work improved overnight, not to mention the new possibilities the TubeShark offers. Most importantly to a small business like mine the initial cost of the machine was quite reasonable and my production time has been cut dramatically. I will happily recommend the TubeShark bender to anyone who like me won't settle for anything less than perfection, made in the USA. The excellent service and support I was given from Char and the staff at ISCO made the whole experience truly stress free and guarantees that I will be a lifelong customer."

"At Sunset Custom, we use the TubeShark to build our wake board towers because it makes the job easy and precise every time. The portability of the TubeShark helps when making large benders and when not in use it stores well."
"One of the biggest reasons for the purchase of the TubeShark in the beginning was the friendly and knowledgeable staff at ISCO. I do have to admit that it has been the best piece of equipment our shop has purchased not only the quality of bends, but the user friendly design that allows anyone to make excellent bends over and over with no learning curve. This machine has given our company an excellent reputation not only to the average customer but also to the off-road and racecar industry. In turn this machine has proven itself over and over again with thousands of pieces run from sprint car bumpers to realtor signs with excellent results every time. Thanks ISCO you have truly made a wonderful product."
"We are writing to let you know how much we love our TubeShark tubing bender. We purchased it less than a year ago and are really happy with its performance. We build off-road racing vehicles and the roll cage is the most important part of the build for obvious safety reasons, in turn is one of the most time consuming. With the Tubeshark we save time and money because of its ease of use. We love the fact that the machine allows us to bend vertically rather than horizontally like many of the other tubing benders that we have looked at. We are also limited on space in our shop so the TubeShark really wins points with us in this aspect since it conveniently folds up and out of the way when not in use. The customer support we have received has also been phenomenal. We would, and have, recommended the TubeShark to others."

"I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know how impressed I am with the TubeShark® bender and your company as well.
The most pleasing part of the decision to purchase the TubeShark® was that it makes beautiful high quality bends. Not having used a bender prior to this I was a little concerned about my ability to get good results without creating a lot of scrap along the way. The learning curve was short as the first test bend I made was perfect and smooth without kinks, and this has been my experience since. Confidence in the machine and my ability to create the desired results have increased each time I use it. I am also most impressed with the service you provide with respect to being available and willing to answer questions."
"I am very happy with my TubeShark® bender. I have shopped for a bender for the past 5 years or more. Having never used a bender, I really didn't know what to look for. I had talked to many companies and read through brochures trying to make a decision. All of them had limitations and operational difficulties that left me undecided.
I have been very satisfied with the TubeShark®. It is very simple to operate and easy to read the degree meter. I am able to reproduce bends every time. The construction of the TubeShark® is very sturdy.
The service that Final Approach Engineering has provided has been very, very helpful. Overall, I have been very pleased with my purchase."
" We sent tube samples out to other bender manufacturers as well as yours; some costing up to $25,000! The best results that we got back were from your bender with ITS! We are sending a check today for your system!
"I received the TubeShark® two weeks ago, and I must say that I'm very pleased with the quality of construction and level of finish. A very nice machine indeed! After an expected period of learning, I've been able to turn out very satisfactory bends!"
