Bending defects - help needed.
I have received my Ridgid 410M today and am getting badly flattened outsides and slight ripples on the inside of my bends and I suspect I need advising on the correct use of the bender. The tube I am using is 10mm OD 0.6mm wall semi-hard straight.
I thought at first the tube was dragging so put a single thickness of masking tape round the start of the bend to mark my zero point and flipped up the clamp. With both 0 marks lined up, I then made a steady 90 deg bend. The flattening began almost immediately and the ripple on the inner radius was confined to the last half of the bend.
If there is anything I need to check on the tool or tube, I do have a set of calipers.
