Spare formers and guides are essential accessories for pipe benders, as they help to ensure accurate and consistent bends in pipes. Formers are shaped pieces of metal or plastic that are placed inside the pipe to help guide it as it is being bent. Guides are used to hold the pipe in place and prevent it from slipping or moving during the bending process.
There are several types of formers and guides available, including standard formers, multi-radius formers, and offset formers. Standard formers are used for making straight bends in pipes, while multi-radius formers are used for making bends with multiple radii. Offset formers are used for making bends that are offset from the center of the pipe.
In addition to formers and guides, there are also a range of other spare parts and accessories available for pipe benders. These can include replacement handles, ratchets, and hydraulic cylinders, as well as spare batteries and charging kits for cordless benders.
When selecting formers and guides for your pipe bender, it is important to choose ones that are compatible with your specific bender and the size and type of pipe you will be bending. It is also important to ensure that you have the right number of formers and guides for your project, as having too few or too many can affect the accuracy and quality of your bends.
