Who makes the best pipe benders?
They all seem to be priced around the same.
Its something I've never thought about - but my hilmors rock
Hilmor for me as well had mine 30 plus years now , bit of oil now and then
old hils were made by bend it now
roths are krap so i hear, made in china!
why spend all that money when an elbow only costs 12p?
I have worn my Rothernberger's out! bent the pin that supports the roller on the 22mm side..
It does seem to clue you up on the quality (or lack of it)
of the pipe you are using .
I though pulled bends had less resistance.
(if that matters with todays pumps + tiny matchbox homes )
every rothenberger ive used creases the pipe and the hook digs into the pipe as well.. rubbish
hilmor or bend it now
Sounds like Hilmor is the one. I'll stay away from Rothenberger
What about Bahco? They look the coolest but they're the most expensive.
Benditnow used to make hilmor and they are made in the uk still
Go with Benditnow. They are the really the original real Hilmor and from what I read on this forum, actually cheaper and better than from the now foreign new Hilmor.
Why pay more for something produced in the Far East when you can have the British made product?
I have a couple of the Hilmor frame benders that must be 50 years old and they are still perfect.
Benditnow, new Hilmor are pants.
