Bending iron pipe size?


Recommended Posts

I've always cold bent, but recently I was given one of those charcoal igniters that some folks like to use to make homemade benders, so I thought I'd build one.

Building it will be no problem for me, but I got to wondering what size pipe to use. Considering the tight C bout bends, I was wondering if a 2-1/2" diameter would be too big. Any opinions? Thanks!

Naw, I'll build this one. I've got all the parts except the pipe, and building one is no sweat.

Hi capt! Now that I think about it, I'm just going to build a few cornerless instruments, and then I'll probably quit making and concentrate on playing. The cornerless have far milder contures, so a wider pipe might work okay.

Thanks for the replies.
