Excellent Pipe Bender
7 Apr 2014
By cagey
, Bristol
"I have had a Record pipe bender for 30 plus years and it was not performing as well as it used to. So decided to look for another. Initially looked at cheaper benders but decided to shell out for the Irwin based on the reviews it had. What a great piece of kit! Managed to put three bends in one length of 15mm pipe, to take the pipe around obstructions and a corner and not a single crease. Easy to use and smooth in operation. Looks well made and robust and should last for years. Highly recommended. Worth every penny."

Best Bender on the market!
8 Jan 2014
By Plumber23
, Midlands
"I purchased this product because all the guys I work with use a Hilmore GLM. It's a great product, it's paint job is robust & the holding arm can be adjusted by a simple bolt. The markings for 25, 45 & 90 degrees are great (you don't get them on other benders) the formers are good quality too... I have pulled lots of bends with mine and perfect every time, no kinks! Plumbers choice!!"

hilmore pipe bender
6 Dec 2013
By RSGILL
, Leeds
"I have used cheaper pipe benders in the past and have to say it is well worth paying the extra bit of cash for the hilmore.. I used to struggle a bit bending 22mm pipe using cheap bender. I have no issues bending 22mm pipe with the hilmore. Also doesn't leave any creases in the pipe worth. Made life a lot easier. Highly recommended."

"I was pleased with the pipe bender which I was buying my son for his christmas present, unfortunately, my son had already had another one bought for him. He rang screwfix and explained the problem and they readily agreed to it to be returned . Excellent service from screwfix. I have bought quite a few things from screwfix in the past for family members who are in the plumbing/building tradeand this was the first time I have had to return an item. Their customer service is brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone. thank you"

Irwin pipe benders;
6 Sep 2012
By billythreepuds
, Croydon
"I'm not a plumber but I'm in the building trade. I got sick of waiting for plumbers and sick of excuses, so I've brought all the tools and I'm doing what I can, "plumbing wise" for myself.
Brought these benders and have used them a few times now, No creasing of the pipes and I find them pretty easy to use. Middle market benders that do the job..Wilco and Son.

"I upgraded to this tool after returning a cheaper previous purchase that was totally unsatisfactory. This one is a good bit of kit and does exactly what it should. It produces accurate clean bends with no damage to the pipe."

Driving me round the bend...!
24 Sep 2013
By Bexcina
, Oxford
"I'd previously purchased a cheaper pipe bender but took it back for a refund as it put ripples in approx 80% of the pipes I tried to bend (and copper being double the price it was about 5 years ago it turned out to be a very expensive day!) - so I caved and ended up paying twice as much to get this model - it still puts ripples in the pipes but the rate is more like 10 or 20% instead 80% - plus it comes with instructions - and one day I hope to read them ;-)"

good bender
9 Jul 2012
By dazzy43
, Batley,West yorks
"I have used this bender on my training course and it had a lot of stick but it performed like it was new. I would recommend you to make your own marks as the ones on the dies can be slightly out, this is such a minor gripe as you get a feel for it after you have used it for a bit.
good product a little pricey but should last a life time if you look after it.

"a good pipe bender and good value too, had to give it 3 stars on performance as the formers needed smoothing down as the castings wasnt great and was marking the pipes."

"This item seems well-made, but the angle guides for 30, 60 and 90 degrees are plain wrong!
Tried to phone the UK contact no. - they are obviously based in a business centre with one person dealing with calls for multiple companies. No-one there, just an answerphone!
Wishing I had bought a different make.
