First things I hear is "I'm a carpenter and handyman......."

Well, that says it all right there.


I really like to two kinks in the 'nice 90-degree angle on your pipe', which is more likely a 110-degree bend!

Poor guy fumbles around with the bender like he's never held one before.

Don't see those benders much in UK. However I have about 4 of them for 20mm and 25mm conduit. Mine however must be faulty....when I use them [no instructions, one is a GB other 3 are ridgid?] my bends come out smooth, not with the 'straight-curve' that he has achieved

Here's an entertaining video of 2 apprentices hand bending 1-1/4. I can't say that I look any different or can do it any better when I hand bend 1-1/4:

Of course it's just like bending 3/4" right?

Not that it's impossible,I just rather bend 1"1/4 with a chicago bender or a 555.

If you only got a couple of bends to make the hand bender is no big deal but if your doing a lot of 1"1/4 work I would just prefer the chicago or the 555.

Most of my 1¼ bending is for 100a services. So there aren't many bends I need to make. A hand bender works just fine for me. I can't imagine hauling a chicago or triple nickel to a site just to do one or two bends.

I can do better than that with the truck bumper.
I swear I've worked with guys that must have been trained by him.
