So my little 20 ton hydraulic bender from House of Tools isn't doing the trick for me anymore, and right now (as much as I'd want to) I can't justify getting a JD Squared bender. So is there a a local shop that sells pre done 90s and 45s that can be welded?
Otherwise I am looking a harassing a local shop to do the bends. Unless someone know of a used bender for sale that is of better quality then the $200 hydraulic benders.
whats the problem with the pipe bender? is it kinking?
yes, the usual problem of trying to bend smaller thickness pipe, I have no problems with stuff 3/16" and thicker but 1/8th kinks and I'm not about to start filling it with sand for every bend. One day I will get a better bender but for now I can't justify that cost. KMS is getting a Chinese knock off of the JD Squared bender in a month or two. Right now a JD with stand and 1 die is about $1000, where the Chinese one for the same money will come with 3 dies for common sizes.
silly question............why would you need to bend thin wall pipe?
Metal Supermarket

I actually found a place in Richmond that I get stuff from when I can't find it anywhere else, 1 1/4 schedule 40 tight 90 (2"radius) with angled ends for weld bead - $3.20 each.
I'll see what metal supermarkets has, that didn't even occur to me and I have an account there, just never seen them there.
