    I upgraded my cheap silverline bender to a nice new hilmor one and it was a good decision. Thanks for your advise, I'm pleased with my purchase.

    I've had my hilmor about 11 years. Worn and battered but still does the job. However I have gone through a few runners (if that's what they are called)?

    Yes. I always call them runners even though I know they are not.

    I have a Rothenberger but its not very good the guides are crap. I inherited a very nice old one from a retired plumber. Unfortunately I don't know what model it is but fantastic, good quality.

    I'm looking at buying a floor standing one. Saw one being used the other day. They are an awesome bit of kit, just bloody expensive for a decent one.

    You can pick them up second hand.

    I know. Always weary of second hand though as they are still about £100.00. Will be gutted if I only get 3 months out of it.
