All figures show the No. 2 Bender with tooling needed for the specific bend. All tooling sold separately.
Bending Pipe and Conduit
Bends Cold, all sizes of standard pipe and conduit up to 2″ inside diameter. Makes a smooth even bend without flattening the pipe or splitting the seam. Bends to any degree or to a continuous coil as desired. Bends to 10 ” radius on the 2″ size, down to a 2″ radius on the 1/4″ size. Illustration shows a 1-1/4″ standard pipe being bent to a return bend on an 8″ radius. (Figure 1)
Bending Eye Bolts, “S” Shapes, etc.
Eye Bolt Bending Feature forms neat smooth Eye Bolts, “S” shapes, “U” shapes, etc., of round or square stock up to 5/8″, cold. By using a wider Bending Dog and longer Forming Pin, flat stock up to 1-1/2″ in width can be handled. With standard equipment, Eyes and “U’s” can be bent with 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″, 7/8″ and 1″ inside openings. Special bushings for bending larger than 1″ eyes are available. Eyes 1-1/2″ or 2″ I.D. can be bent easily on 3/4″ stock. (Figure 2)
Bending Angles, Offsets, etc. of Heavy Cold Stock
Bends Angles, Irregular Shapes, Offsets, etc., of round or square stock up to 1-1/4″, or of flat stock up to 4-1/2″ x 1/2″. Gauges are provided for accurately locating the point of the bend and for gauging the degree of the angle desired. Illustration shows apiece of 2-1/2″ x 3/8″ stock being bent to a right angle. (Figure 3)
Bending Heavy Cold “U” Shapes
Bends “U” Shapes of 1-1/4″ round or square stock, or of 4-1/2″ flat stock, cold. Self-locking Cam Shaped Dies for bending “U”s of 1-3/4″, 2″ and 2-1/4” inside spread are furnished with General Purpose Dies. These Dies can be built up to any larger size desired by simply bending a piece of flat stock around them. Illustration shows a “U” bolt being bent. (Figure 4)
Bending Sharp Square Bends on Wide Flat Stock
Bends Sharp Bends to a right angle or less on 4-1/2″ x 1/4″ flat stock, cold. This feature of the bender is used where a real sharp corner bend is required. It can be used for making sharp offsets, stake pockets, sharp cornered “U” clips, etc. Illustration shows a piece of flat stock inserted ready for bending. (Figure 5)
Bending Rings and Coils
Rings and continuous Coils of any desired diameter can be formed as shown in the illustration. The Forming ring may be a short piece of pipe of the right diameter or a 20B1 Bushing can be purchased from our Parts Catalog. The stock is fed along a distance of 1″ or 2″ after each pull of the hand lever. (Figure 6)
