" Used it for bending plastic conduit.
Get a few crinkles on the inside of a 90degree bend, but nothing major.

Very useful conduit bender

Does the job!
19 Aug 2014
By
, St.Albans
" When you need to bend plastic conduit, because you don't want joints in the middle, or want a bend that's gentler than a bent coupling will give, or the bend needed is not ninety degrees, this is what you need.
Just make sure you attach a strong cord if it's going all the way inside, and overbend than bend back a little to release the spring. "

Good for everything except >90

" Good product but struggles to do 90 degrees without kinking and also when you pull it back out the coils have separated slightly.
It is however dirt cheap. "

Not a great fit
27 Jan 2013
By
, Norfolk
" Found this spring to be a little on the small size to fit the conduit bore, resulting in creasing if bending more than about 45 degrees.
In short, great for a small offset.

Poor Tool - Do not Buy
10 Jan 2016
By
, Chelmsford
" I have bent a few pipes in my time and the reason this is so cheap is that it does not work. In the words of my old Grandad, buy cheap buy twice!
The bender despite being made by Tower supposedly to fit their own conduit is too narrow for the bore of the pipe, the pipe kinks, irrespective of whether you heat it or not. This bender is never going to be effective unless you really want wrinkled pipes! "

For heavy gauge, not light
10 Jan 2016
By
, Guildford
" As others have commented, this is a small diameter bending spring for use with heavy gauge conduit. This is confirmed by the green paint mark.
However the Tower 20mm conduit Screwfix sell is light gauge despite their description. This has a thinner wall than heavy gauge so needs a slightly larger diameter spring, which would have a white paint mark.
If you use it with light gauge conduit the result will be poor bends with wrinkles.
Time for some joined-up thinking, Screwfix.
It may be a good bending spring for heavy gauge but I've had to mark its performance etc. on light gauge.
(Review based on item bought at Guildford on 10/1/16. SKU 70712, barcode 5018486546832) "

Too kinky
16 Nov 2015
By
, Welshpool
" I found this spring to be virtually useless as it kinks nearly every bend (Sadly too small size to suit the conduit bore size).
I thought it was a little too cheap.
Sadly I have to agree with a previous negative review:
" This was terrible every bend ended in a kink do not buy " "
