  • like to buy a 1/8" steel pipe bender

    Hi there,
    I'd like to buy a 1/8" steel pipe bender, (not tube).

    Does anyone know of such a bender? pls.

    The local plumbing store tell's me that there not available from Ridgid.

    Maybe there is a different brand available?

    Thanks in advance,

    Martin

    depending on the bend radius how about just a bending spring like used on copper tubing.

      Thanks mate,
      There are no springs available for steel pipe. and steel pipe requires much more force to bend than copper. It needs to be bent at a uniform radius in a bender.

      The only other option is lots of elbows and tape, then all the pieces between the elbows have to individually cut & threaded, which I'm trying to avoid. It would be so much easier to put several radius's into a section of pipe and just thread and connect it each end. It'll also look a whole lot better too.

      The outside diameter of 1/8" steel pipe standard wall is 0.403" with a 0.068 wall, just over a 1/16".

        You can use an electricians Pipe bending Hickey. They come in several sizes ,and are for thin wall metal conduit' I have 1/2" 3/4" 1" . for schedule 40 pipe You'd need Oxy Aceteline
        torch to heat [ back side of pipe. I have a hydraulic bender [ bottle jack ] With different Dia. shoes that does up to 3" Go to Harbor Frieght, they have smaller ones ,CHEAP !
        I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

          I would think one could just use a good tubing bender, maybe use a 1/2 tube bender on the 1/8" pipe, bent a lot of steel hydraulic tubing,

          using a lever type bender, Lever Type Tube Benders - Google Search

            Thanks for the replies....
            I was thinking that 0.4" pipe in a 0.5" tube bender, with the 0.1" gap on the side wall, will collapse the side wall and partially kink the pipe.

              Sorry, I wasn't paying attention. That's small pipe. Metal brake line bends beautifully. stop at auto parts store.

                Check these guy's out. I have a buddy that makes bikes. He said they should be able to point you in the right direction if this model doesn't suit your needs. Most of the people I know do not bend pipe this small.

                  If you want to buy this then first take suggestion from experts that which to buy because some low quality pipes are going to melted. so, it is better to buy some high quality pipe.
