    Um, you can't bend hard copper.

    The tool you describe is for soft copper.

      "Um, you can't bend hard copper."

      The bender that franklie referenced may be for soft copper (I didn't look), but sorry to tell you that yes, there are benders for hard copper pipe, I have used them.

      Read about the Ridgid models 358, 368 & 378 here
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
