Bending

benders with red stars

The Hand Benders have a little star (highlighted here in red) right on the casting that indicates back to back bending. It is located right under the handle screws.

 

Handle Up

  1. bending conduit - handle upMark the conduit
  2. Insert the conduit into the bender so that the arrow is aligned with the bending mark
  3. Place one foot on the bender as illustrated. Use heavy foot pressure on the bending shoe; maintain this pressure throughout the bend.
  4. Look down the line of sight as illustrated. Stop bending when the pin is in line with the appropriate angle mark.

 

Note: Over bend rigid conduit slightly to compensate for spring back.

 

Handle Down

  1. bending conduit - handle downMark the conduit
  2. Insert the conduit into the bender so that the arrow is aligned with the bending mark.
  3. Position the bender as shown, with your body as close to the bender as possible.
  4. With the handle angled to prevent slipping, apply constant pressure against the conduit throughout the bend.
  5. Bend until the edge of the conduit is in line with the degree scale as illustrated.

 

Note: Over bend rigid conduit slightly to compensate for spring back.

Bending Tips

  • Line up all bends in the same plane
  • Bend 1/2" and 3/4" EMT with the handle down.
  • Bend 1" and 1-1/4" conduit with the handle up.
  • When bending with the handle up, work at a stairwell or loading dock so that previously made bends hang over the edge.
