Rated 2 out of 5 by from No good for Wednesbury 10mm I bought this thinking that being Rothenberger it would be good quality. It is, except it doesn’t work. The heel and sole are held together by a metal bar attached by what are essentially a couple of big rivets. The visible rivet head in the illustration misleads by giving the appearance of a solid axle, but the other side is nothing more than soft metal flattened in a power press. Consequently after a few bends it works lose and the heel misaligns as you pull it over the shoe to bend the pipe. Unfortunately, there is one good side and one crushed side. After several bends using Wednesbury 10mm copper (Screwfix 82421) I picked up the pieces and turned them over to discover the other side of the pipe was crushed. Each successive bend being worse than the previous and all but the first are unusable. Looking along the length of the pipe whilst bending it’s clear to see the shoe move out of alignment because the connecting bar has worked lose by a couple of mm. This draws the pipe onto edge of the seat in the heel and crushes the pipe. I did consider drilling out the rivet and bolting it together but decided that was too much work and I shouldn’t be needing to do this to e new tool on day 1 of using it. I tried to establish if the type of pipe was having an impact. The pipe I have has 0.8mm wall thickness as best as I can tell. There’ no data on the website. I found some pipe on the internet with 0.7mm wall thickness and maybe that’s sufficient difference in strength to break the tool. Also, might explain why some users have success with it but others don’t? Have decided to buy a box of cold bends and stick to JGS for the tricky bits. It can be bent nearly as tightly as copper. Screwfix branch staff are always 100% helpful in the branches I’ve used and returns are never a problem even if you just change your mind afterwards (as long as it’s still in the packaging). HO equally as proficient if you need to cancel an online order. They have so many branches you are rarely far away from one, the opening hours give you greater flexibility in managing your day and the range of products is unrivalled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Bought this to bend 8mm microbore and it works really well. Well made and easy to use. No instructions supplied so had to watch a similar product on you tube. What a time saver. Have been able to make bends and get on with the job quickly.

What are the R & L markings on the handle used for?

Asked by: Optimiser

i am a mechanic and my question is, will this tool bend 6mm copper brake pipe without flattening or kinking?

Asked by: lloyd39
This product should work on 6mm copper pipe (6mm being the outer diameter, not the bore DIA). This is important, because if the copper is very thin then it may ripple or deform. As we have not specifically tested use on copper brake pipe, we cannot unfortunately give you a specific guarantee this would work best.

Will this bend 10mm pvc tube?

Asked by: Woody1983
Thanks for your query. This tool is designed to bend copper pipe. If you are referring to plastic coated copper pipe, then it will not work as the pipe would actually be a diameter of 12mm. If its for plastic pipe, then it shouldn't require a bender as its very flexible anyway.

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.
