Guides not aligned so pipe was crimped, 3-4mm out. Disapointed

Don't bother with this bender - it doesn't work. There's too much play in the two hinge pins causing the guide and former to run out of alignment resulting in a distorted bend.
After the first use, I exchanged it for the Rothenberger model, which, although look the same, performs as expected.

Used to bend oil line from tank to boiler. Easy to use with no ripples or kinks. Does what it says on the tin!

A cheap copy of a professional tool that performs almost as good as no tool at all! Don't waste your money on this.
The straight top half is about 2mm offset from the curved bottom half so it fails to wrap around the pipe properly and initial pressure on the handles crushes the pipe between the two offset halfs so the bends end up with a 2mm "seam" all the way round and almost completely blocked internally.
Spend more and get something that has been made properly. Screwfix shouldn't stock this rubbish.
