    I've heard different thoughts on this. Some use a tool like the Derby Worx Pro-Rail Rider with Pro Axle Press. And some suggest the more manual way. What do you think the best way to bend axles is and why?

    buy an axle bender. Derby worx work just fine if you cannot find a Goatboy bender.

    Takes 5 second, and no hammering is involved

    People talk about goatboy tools but I haven't found any sites that sell them. Where do you buy goatboy products?

    He doesn't really make tools anymore, but sometimes they come up on the forum for sale.

    You can get a Derby Worx tool on sites like Maximum Velocity, and they are usually in stock. It works just as well.
