a. Copper and brass. Benders are designed to facilitate bending brass or
copper pipe and tubing. Benders issued through the Army supply system are of the
spring type sized to fit pipe and tubing ranging from 1/4 to 1 inch in diameter
(fig 13). A tube bender is used to prevent tubing from kinking or flattening out
at the desired bend. To use a bender, push it over the tube until the center of
the bender is centered over the point in the tube where the bend is to be made.
The tube can then be bent by hand to the desired radius. Pull the bender from the
tube after bending.
