    Thumbs up Pipe Template Software

    Bert,

    I came across a website some time ago that you will find helpful. It will generate templates that you print off and cut out to make angled intersections of pipe. Much more efficient and professional than cutting v's with a grinder and filling gap with weld. I transferred my paper templates onto some thin red metallic strips I found up here to make it even easier. If you need specs on pipe I.D. O.D. or wall thickness, just print off schedule of pipe page from Mathey Dearman.

    Hopefully the link works off my post, I'm still new here. I know the link works manually.

    Later,

    I bought all mine separate over time. It started out as a manual unit. The Air/Hydro unit is from a shop crane, I fabbed the brackets for it and the stand. KB's full hydro is the best unit for a rotary draw bender, and a lot faster, but if your on a budget and don't use it for everyday production, the air/hydro works well. I have less than $200 into the conversion. As far as bending 2" schedule 40 pipe, the 105's largest pipe die is 1.5" (1.9" O.D.). I don't believe the 302 will bend over 90*. The 105 will bend to 180*.

    Thumbs up

    Mathey-Dearman is a prominent manufacturer in the U.S. of welding tools & equipment. Beveller's, clamps, layout tools, all the way to rod ovens etc. Really neat stuff if you can afford it.

    Main site:
    http://www.mathey.com/products.htm

    To get to pipe sizes look on left margin for "Product Tutorials"
    Next screen select "Commercial Pipe Sizes" in pdf format and you're there.

    I tried to give you a direct link but it didn't want to work but this will.

    Later,

    I would recommend the 105, many fabricators and shops have that style bender so there is lots of support online for it. The advantage of the 302, is it's smaller and portable, but only bends to 90*.
