Pipe bending 101 - Page 216

post #2151 of 2160
As far as I know the Ridgid 600 series is meant more for stainless steel bending, so they are unnecessarily heavy duty for annealed copper. The 300 or 400 series will be good enough for annealed or half-hard copper. Have been using the 400 series myself on both hard and half-harf (R290 and R250). I have been using the same cutter and reamer you are intending to buy, both very solid and get the job done. The other items I can't comment on.

The 600 series is pretty nice. I personally use a 400 series on copper and stainless. If I had the money I would have bought the 600 series just because.

That's true enough! It's around twice the price though if memory serves.

What are the technical/usability difffernces between the two? I couldn't really tell, but am curious. I've never bent metal tubing before. Thanks.

The higher the series number the harder the tube that it's supposed to be able to bend. There's a nice little video on youtube about using the 600 series:

That fancy thing you can do with the handle would sure come in handy when you need to do those 180 degree bends! I believe you're also supposed to be able to use it for bending titanium tubing in case that's on the agenda. tongue.gif

okay ill do my best to explain..

The 400 series has a solid "former" that pushes the tube into the shoe. The shoe is the rounded part that creates the bend. It also has a fixed former handle.
The 600 series has two wheels that are the former and has an adjustable handle so you can apply more torque at the 90 degree point of the bend.

hopefully that makes sense.

lol Nameless beat me to it.

edit.. Here's my benders for work.

That coil is amazing!
post #2160 of 2160
always had this problem when bending my tubes, my tube radius are always messed up. Is this caused by the bender? It is possible to us a mandrel to avoid it?

(Type L copper, chromed afterwards)



ignore the speecy, this was the best photo i had lol
