It has been discontinued for quite a while now, probably due to low demand, since they don’t make NEC compliant bends. If you try and order one from that link to Ace Tool Online, I bet you will get an email a couple of days later telling you this, as they drop ship practically everything direct from Klein. I don’t know why they still have it listed on their site.

I bet you could probably find a used one on ebay or Amazon auctions though.
I know that there are also some generic China made short-radius benders out there still, but wouldn’t know where to find them.

BTW: If you have access to a Wiremold 600B bender… I have used one for 1/2-inch EMT and Type-L before in a pinch and it worked fine, since it has the same short-radius Benfield head.

Just a thought.... Bridgeport has these neat ells out now that are like a capped ell, but the cap is on the side. I forget what they call them. That might help you out... use a fitting instead of a short radius bend?

Okay, just checked. It's not Bridgeport. It's T&B. They call them the "Universal Elbow".

Yeah, they seem a little weird to me too, but it's good to know about weird stuff. Odd fittings can sometimes help you out of a jam.
