Plumbers and heating? Never seen construction guys care much for more than keeping the lines in the same building. Says the guy currently doing plumbing as I remodel my master bath and the entire house

You won't know where the middle of the bend is, but you can know exactly where to start the bend. 90* bends are used some, but many bends are 120* etc. and finding the middle is next to impossible. I can't imagine doing it any other way and staying accurate. I used a filed to cut a small V into my die to mark the start of the bend. It will never wear off.

Now tube notching is an art, at least with my piece of crap (Errrr...top of the line for drill type) notcher mounted to my drill press. An end mill would be far superior.

The real art is welding, and I myself have a lot to learn.

Well please share a better way of bending. If there is a better way, I would like to learn.

Here is one of the best guides for single plane bending I have seen.
