opinions on different Pipe Benders?

I'm looking into getting a higher end bender for my shop, I need something that can make very neat bends on wussy automotive exhaust pipe. I make motorcycle exhaust systems on someone elses BP-70 and it crushes the pipe a little bit. I need something that wont put indentation in the pipe.

I need something that can also do bends close together(like 8" apart)on one piece of pipe.

appreciate any help

i think your right about mandrel being the way to go

yea from what i understand the "mandrel" is a ball that gets pulled through with wire and it makes the pipe really smooth. pretty sweet

Martino, we carry many lines of Mandrel benders for Exhaust work, give us a call or check out our website, we'd be glad to discuss it with you. They get pricey however, your looking at $35Gs and up
