Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why does it kink pipe? I've bought this pipe bender to fit 8mm gas pipe to my Campervan conversion. I have tried and tried but it just continues to kink the pipe when bending! I'm seriously considering getting some more pipe and soldering bends in - granted more time but it will look so much better than what I've just fitted! If anyone can advise what I'm doing wrong I'd be very grateful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No better than the cheaper one I have been using the cheaper equivalent for some years and it crushes 8mm copper pipe if bending more than about 45deg. Based on other reviews of this one I assumed it was a better tool and decided to upgrade as I needed to form some neat 90 and 180deg bends in 8mm copper fuel pipe. Apart from being red instead of black I could not see any difference when it came but I gave it a try anyway. Sure enough, no difference, so back it went for a full refund and I am now using a bending spring instead for anything more than 45degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bend it after years of DIY using solder joints i took the plunge to buy this tool. Oh how i wish i had done so before as it would have saved a fortune. Used on 8mm central heating mods and it has paid for itself already and made a more professional job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Having previously resorted to using fittings etc to route pipework, decided to have a go myself! The Rothenberger MicroBender is easy to use, resulting in bends that fitted perfectly. Item is of very good quality, and am sure would be as useful to a professional as is to a DIY'er like me!

Bending hot rolled steel rod 6mm max

I know it's not intended for this but, for a dabbler making fairly simple garden frames, etc. will this be ok?
Asked by: Aeolus
As this tool was not designed for beding hot rolled steel rod, we cannot unfortunately advise without testing this. If you would like to send us a sample of the rod in question, we can of course test this for you. We hope this may be of some help to you.

Is this product suitable (strong enough) for bending 316 stainless steel tube?

I have some 6mm OD x 1mm wall thickness and 10mmOD x 1mm wall thickness 316 stainless steel tube. Is this product manufactured to suit 316SS tube?
Asked by: 6ft7ian
Good Afternoon Ian, Thank you for your query, I am afraid that this bender is not suitable for Stainless steel. I am sorry we cannot help you any further at this time, Many thanks, Katie-Rothenberger

Heat exchange coil bending

Hi, can anyone tell me if I could use this pipe bender to make a continuous bend in order to make a copper or stainless steel heat exchanger coil - in other words something like a 'spring' shape.
Asked by: Starman69
With regard to copper pipe the only way i have to form a coil is to back fill the copper pipe with Salt and you need to ensure that is well packed in tot he pipe and then seal both ends tightly by crimping them .The salt will not compress and will ensure that the pipe will not flatten at any point .you will need a former to bend the pipe around i used a wooden pole ,locking the start position with a g clamp .You will need to chop off the crimped ends and then wash out the salt with warm water .
