  3. Re: eBay sniped a set of pipe benders..... Bargain I think.

    Those benders look like the ones used to bend copper or alloy tubing, for water pipes and gas pipes. They are too light duty construction to be of use trying to bend metal tubes/pipes

    TickTock, if your ever increasing circles take you to Adelaide, SA, we would be able to find somewhere for you to crash
