Idk I've been using fittings for years and have never ran into an issue or a scenario I can't figure out. If I need a 1-3/16" offset, I use a 15 degree and cut some of the straight piece off the end of the 15 and/or 90 to achieve the desired length for the exact offset measurement I need. Same with the 3-1/4", maybe for that I use a 30 degree and apply the same method. There's no offset I can't achieve with fittings. I usually plan way ahead and pick routes that work for what I have to work with. Idk hard to comment b/c I haven't ever run into a problem yet. I assume using a bender does cut cost though. Hell I've never used one so maybe it's easier and faster as well. Probably not for everything but if you're working with 2" rigid and have to thread everything together, then yeah I'm all for that bender for saving time and $.Where do you buy a 2" stick of rigid with a 1-3/16" offset on one end and a 3-1/4" offset on the other end facing a 90* quadrant the other way?
You must have better wholesalers, or just do work in wide open spaces.
The years spent working in your daddy’s cabinet shop payed off on this job.Yesterday, I replaced the kitchen sink at my daughters house. It was a cast iron model that had seen better days........and the new one is a stainless type.
Both were standard 22 X 33. Removing the old one was not too bad.
Usually, with this size of sink, the lower cabinets are 36" apart however, the idjit that did the cabinets had only 31 1/2" between them. I had to cut the countertop (formica) a bit larger in both directions and modify the side of one of the cabinets.
About an hour later, the new sink fit.
Ever notice how nothing ever goes as planned...........lol.
Lol....exactly right, on both counts!The years spent working in your daddy’s cabinet shop payed off on this job.
My papaw always said the main difference between an amateur and a professional is a amateur will work themselves into a corner, but a professional knows how to fix the mistakes and cover them over.
The pipe that we needed to bend was to mount a camera, hanging over the side of a building. We thought about making something out of ready-made fittings, but didn't want to chance it. Last thing we need is a coupling failing and sending an object falling 80' to the ground.
