Pipe bender!!!

Something I've wanted for quite sometime....

I pulled it out the corner of Biffer's man cave and cleaned it up.

Got the formers for some small stuff plus 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" but it will bend 2" if I can find/buy a former for it

Bought it off Biff so it'll be on it's way to my man cave soon.

Awesome!![

Kick him in the nuts, all these specialists weren't born with welding masks on, I can remember my first plat with a TIG set, he will do just fine, I've given him a bin full of off cuts to play with, the best bit of advice would be, make the joints as close fitting as possible before you weld

No wonder they are so expensive then if there are two people's margins involved.
