    HF has them on sale from time to time. They work, not the greatest, but a whole lot better than me trying to bend it by hand.

    I have seen them even lower priced than this sale price.

    A bender powered by a 10 ton hydraulic jack.capable of bending
    up to 2" pipe should be available at a reasonable price to-day.
    Saw many homemade and plans for homemade benders years ago.
    If you decide to construct your own it may be easier to purchase
    bending heads and rollers if they are available separately.
    Have seen some good designs in later years and if doing much pipe
    work again would build one along these lines utilising bending heads,
    rollers and jack from one purchased 20 years ago.

    A pipe bender? sounds like something that would make work alot easier. If you dont build oen you could always use a oxy/fuel torch. I used that all last year at school I found it worked very well. Or you could always try to go on Ebay or find someone who is selling one? If im thinking of what you want then im sure you could buy one second hand.
