"Bought this for some complex pipe bending and to avoid using too many couplings. After watching a couple of YouTube videos on how to get accurate pipe bends (use a pencil and protractor - don't rely on any marks on the bender itself). I successfully got a difficult 3D bend to start at the correct place and end at the correct place - first time! So very pleased."
"I took a chance on this having read some reviews that reported crimping and flattening of the pipes. I found that it did exactly that on older, painted copper piping but on new, shiny pipes there were no problems at all."
"When I got the pipe bender out of the box to use I found that the 15mm die had been poorly machined. This was soon remedied by filing the rough edges smooth - not a big job. Once done the pipe bender worked great."
"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..."
