I want to buy a pipe bender for some rare pipe bending. Although if I actually had one, I'd probably upgrade to extremely infrequently.
Mostly inch and a quarter, inch and a half light stuff with mild bends. Handrail type stuff and if I want short radius stuff, I'd buy the component pieces.
Would you buy the HF or El Cheapo units or spend a little more for a better one?
Experiences, opinions, and caveats appreciated.
