Can 15mm chrome copper be used in a pipe bender, or will the chrome crack/peel off??

yes you can bend chrome at 90 degrees.

you might want to check your formers for wear
very possible as my last machine is in the bin but i honestly didnt think you could.i stand corrected.i also refused to believe you could bend overflow pipe until i tried it myself
yep clean formers , i bent a bit the other week and it just stretched and snapped half way through the 90. :oops: :oops: till i wired wooled the formers clean of carp
Well my bender's fairley new, and I'll only need a small offset - so should be fine :)

Thanks again. :D
