Irwin Hilmor GLM Pipe Bender
Makes a perfect bend each time
A great bit of kit, I had never used a pipe bender before so was surprised at how easy it was to setup and use.
The pipe bender is very well made and I have had no problems so far. I have made about 45 bends without any problems on both 15mm and 22mm pipe.
My only tip is to be smooth and steady when you are making the bend otherwise you can get ripples on the inside of the bends.

Does the job it is supposed to
I am not a plumber and I found this piece of kit relatively easy to use. I removed a very poor radiator from a bedroom and replaced it with a more appropriate one. Both the western let and outlet needed to be moved and the were close to a joust. A neat 90 degree bend removed the need for elbow joints and the pipes fit into the space.
There was no rippling of the pipe and each pipe I used had two bends in at 90 degrees to each other. This was achieved with no issues I was impress with this sturdy bit of kit, only 15 more rads to go........

Bought to replace a warn pipe bender that kept creasing 22mm pipe. Quite stiff to use at first, but no more creases & a lot smoother than outgoing tool. Seems like a quality product from first impressions.
