A champion piece of kit
04-Jul-2012
By
, wakefield
"If you are a hobby plumber you'll never get the throughput to justify spending 50-70 pounds on a professional pipe bender. Thsi almost as good at pocket money price. I clamp mine into a workmate and bend with no probs both 15 and 22 mm. It really is "heavy-weight" and bending 22mm without a workmate or vice takes a bit of effort. The finished bends are perfect. If you do just one bathroom you'll save the cost of the bender in copper elbows alone, not to mention peace of mind having fewer joints to leak test."

Good value and robust
17-May-2012
By
, Surrey
"Bought this as an alternative to benders twice the price on the site as I was plumbing in 2 bathrooms.
Bends 15mm copper with ease and was able to bend some pretty tricky routings.
You need to take care when bending 22mm copper otherwise it will ripple but overall a was very happy with the performance of them."

Great value pipe bender
21-Mar-2014
By
, Ripon
"I just wish I'd bought a pipe bender like this years ago instead of struggling with pipe springs and a workmate.
Would be nice if it had etched marks for 30, 45, 90 degrees etc instead of a sticky label but at the price you cannot complain.
I've only used it on 15mm so far but it is a breeze to create offsets especially after watching a video on how to do it.
Found best way to measure offset was to use one of those cutting boards that has a 10mm grid on it, saves mucking about with two rulers."

Handy Pipe Bender
05-Apr-2013
By
, Isle of Wight
"I bought this pipe bender to help with an awkward pipework problem on a replacement power shower. It got me out of a hole and proved very easy to use as well as very good value. I think it does need the use of a Workmate style bench to be fully effective."

"I am upset that I did not find this product before attempting plumbing DIY. So easy to use and to create that perfect pipe for that job. I could have saved tens of hours of planning and hundreds of pounds in end fittings if only I knew of the art of pipe bending..."

"It does the job and reduces the number of joints required (so worth the money...) Not a fan of springs (they won't enter pipes cut with an auto cutter)."

"It is good value for money and does the job, although the quality of the former is poor as it has been marking the pipe and the back guides aren't brilliant either as they seem to be made of a soft steel so it is difficult to pull the arms together."

"Does the job well and was a fantastic price. Easy to use on 15mm copper pipe - requires a bit more muscle for 22mm - but gets the job done.
Why pay £70?

Needs improvement
11-May-2009
By
, Maidstone
"I have been using these benders for 2 weeks now in the class room under professional guidance.
The 15 mm bend is good the 22mm bend is not.
The back guide is too shallow and does not wrap the pipe enough. This leads to the pipe having a small groove either side on the outside of the bend.
There is nothing at all wrong with the 15mm bends so if you have little intention to work with 22mm pipe buy them they are good value.
But if you need to work with 22mm pipe then buy the Hilmors, I wish I had.

"These are not a good purchase at all. They don't give a clean bend in fact they kink the pipe. I bought them as a spare set and have been regretting it ever since. Most of the time, budget goods are passable if not excellent but these are rubbish."
