First attemps at bending 1 inch (25mm) PVC

Postby DIYguy » Mon Jun 06, 2016 1:55 pm

In the future there may be some PVC projects coming up that would involve bending 1 inch Schedule 40. This was the first attempt at making some pretty sharp bends. (used a piece of 3 in Sch 40 as the bending mandrel.)

Hi, do you want to bend 1" carbon steel sch 40 pipe? The chances of it going out of round is great at that sort of radius.

May I ask what you want to use it for?

If I look at the video, heading and description it looks like PVC pipe...

If it is not ANSI metal piping and PVC, then I apologize, it is very well done to bend it and keep it round.

It is PVC (pastic)

As to the end use, they are several projects we are contemplating where having the process of bending is to our advantage.

Were they bent by hand around the 3" pipe?
