    They do them on all sizes to be honest. I learned with those when I did my apprenticeship:)
    These are a lot smaller than the ones from himore. I have both and usually I use the german ones. I could try to get you some percentage if you want them. I know quite a few ppl .

    The Ridgid 315M is for soft copper tube only, not the usual half hard.

    Only English made one is bend it now or one of the ones they make for other brands. I think they make nerrad and maybe the Ox bender. They used to make the hilmor when it was made in the uk. The hilmor and record benders are now made in china I think, not as good tolerances/ quality.

    The other option which is what I took is an near new second hand record of eBay. The record with the cranked arm.

    got ropped into buying a 'todays tools hand bender' citys was getting rid for new stock so only cost me £24. seems decent quality. Never will use it tho, don't even know why I bought it. my 20 year old hilmor is untouchable.
