Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bending a piece of pipe is often easy enough, but the real challenge is in bending it to a nice even radius without kinking or flattening it at the bend. To achieve consistent and professional results you need a pipe bending machine and that is what this book is about.

Here you will get step-by-step instructions showing how to construct a very simple machine capable of bending a radius in pipe to any desired angle of from 0 to 180 degrees. And with the proper dies, solid round rod, flat bar, and square tubing can be formed as well.

The frame of the machine is built entirely form easy to find, 1/4" x 2" H.R.S. flat bar. Other things you will need are a welder to assemble the frame, a few common hand tools, a drill press, jig saw and a few nuts and bolts that are easily found at the hardware store.

You will discover how easy it is to construct bending dies made of hardwood. And you will be amazed ot see how well they perform. Dies can be made to bend any size pipe you might want up to the 1" diameter capacity of the machine. Need a larger capacity? Consider scaling up the design and building the machine from heavier material.

Build a pipe bender today and discover what a little leverage and a couple of bending dies can do for you. It's a simple design and an easy project to build. The end result is a compact, atractive machine that mounts nicely at the end of you work bench.
